This ornate gilt bronze and brass wall hung letter rack was produced in France in the 19th century, circa 1865 and was an indispensable item during this period. This small, petite letter rack was most likely designed for a lady to be attached to a study wall, it is not free standing. The wonderful gilt ormolu classical detailing reflects the earlier 18th century Rococo style. Our favorite feature is the three classical female figures which adorn the center of the letter rack.
