Bulgakov’s coat rack
Wood, lacquer. Russia, the first quarter of the 20th century.
There is a whole collection of different coat racks, shelves and hooks in the cloakroom and all of them are functional. But the one rack high above the ceiling immediately catches one’s eye. Hard to believe but true – once Bulgakov’s coats and hats were hanging on it. Acquired in 2010 from L. Tarasevich.
