Imagining a proper Victorian without a letter holder is tantamount to historical blasphemy. Should you wish to capture the grace and warmth of writing in a bygone era you would be hard pressed to find a more elegant accessory. Finely wrought, intricate details abound on this gracious accessory, and with or without missives it makes a beautiful statement.

Details: B&H produced many writing accessories, including a number of enduringly popular styles of letter holders. This Victorian rack or holder (marked with numbers 3559 & 7039) was cast in iron then gilded, and features a classic nineteenth century motif of scrolls, foliage, and flowers surrounding a center cartouche. It's suitable for holding letters, stationery, or napkins.

NOTE: As with many antique items, this has been reproduced in less expensive materials like brass, usually without the maker's marks. The holder we are offering for sale is an original, not a reproduction.

CONDITION: Good vintage condition, with wear to the gilding on one side being more pronounced (see picture four).

SIZE: 10.25” long by 7” high by 6” deep.

CIRCA: 1890s

SHIPPING: Because this item is valuable, the shipping costs automatically include insurance.
