Pyrography is the art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object such as a poker; also known as pokerwork or wood burning. The term means "writing with fire", from the Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing).

This wonderful wisk broom/brush wall pocket, circa 1900-1915, is unique not only for its useful purpose but also design. The back has an oval cartouche decorated with the heads of three horses racing neck-to-neck with manes flowing in the breeze. The remainder is covered with various scrolls and geometric designs. The attached pocket assembly is marked "Brush Up". The piece measures 7 3/8" by 7 1/4" and extends from the wall 1 1/2" by the original ribbon hanger. There are no damages or repairs; minor nicks and scuffs from use.
