A Whatnot is a piece of furniture derived from the French étagère, which was exceedingly popular in England in the beginning of the 19th century and onwards. It usually consists of slender uprights or pillars, supporting a series of shelves for holding china, ornaments, trifles, or "what not", hence the allusive name. In its English form, it is a convenient piece of drawing room furniture
