Fabulous and rare pair of antique French tole letter holders. Wonderful handpainted designs on a black ground. Each letter holder has a central motif of a painted landscape in miniature--one a lake scene and the other a river scene. The landscapes are surrounded by a floral garland and scroll design and tiny cascades of foliage in gold gilt. All the painting is entirely by hand---no transfer at all! Paint is all original with no touch up and natural distressing giving them the wonderful patina we love. Each letter holder measures 9.25" wide by 7.5" high by 2.5" deep. These are truly special and, I doubt, you will see another pair! Wouldn't these make incredible lamps.
