Purpose of embellishments on vintage stand

Are these decorative, or functional for directing hoses to air pumps and filters?

I would say they are decorative. Are they on both front and back of the stand or only on one side?

just from what I can see in the photo it looks like they don't have them in the back so I would say it's decorative or functional for managing cables and airline

Itís only one side, but could be front or back obviously.

Nice looking stand!! I would think they embellishments are decorative and I really like the color of the stand myself.

Personal preference on which side you want to face out; if you are looking for a clean look or plan on placing another tank on the lower level, I would place the decorated side to the rear.

If it's truly vintage, it's probably decoration. Hose/cable management was kind of an afterthought in the past.
But honestly, it's whichever you want it to be 🙂

Thanks, just got it back from the shop. I asked them to special order the powder.

Believe it is truly vintage, the footprint is an exact match with the metaframe.
