A fine book rack made around the 1930s, although the theme is from earlier. I have very little knowledge about these wonderful book racks but it seems H.L. Judd is a company well known for making things like these, but the mark doesn't indicate that it's H.L. Judd. The quality is of that company's calibre. There is a mark in the lower right hand corner of each end--it looks like a sideways 'J'' which could be Jennings company. There is a number inside of the end--9788. This book rack is simply beautiful. The woman's face and flowers are colorized in the metal, which seems a stamped bronze and iron. The sliding tubs underneath to expand the book rack --up to 13"--are solid brass. Perfect for anyone's library.
The rack measures 4.5" tall and 8" long when not expanded. There is no damage, no wear. It does not fold inward like so many of these book racks do. Thank you for checking in at my shop. Please ask any questions. I will do my best to answer.
