Old House was almost named Napoleon, because my friend Mark said that it looked like the man. I gave it the alternate name though, because of the elements of which it is composed. The base is a leg portion of a small table to which I attached a rusty license plate and some curtain rods wrapped in wire. The circular piece is an old vent-Mark says from an air conditioning system-and the top is an elegantly carved fragment of fine furniture. These elements did not all come from the same house, but they could have-one that belonged to someone's grandma. SOLD
