A popular item of Art Nouveau furniture consisting usually of three tiered shelves of different sizes and used for displaying small objects. The shelves are carried by slender supports. Also known as a 'whatnot'. (Gabriele Fahr-Becker)

I promise to add a photographic example of an Etagere next week. Who could be without a piece of furniture dubbed a 'whatnot'?!
