Cast brass Gothic letter rack. Item 4540.This good quality brass Gothic letter rack or holder features an intricately cast fence to hold the letters or notes, and arching above that is a bough of grapes and grape leaves. The fence sits on a plinth with an equally detailed frieze around the chamfered edge, and the whole thing rests on four bun feet. This is very detailed decoration in the high Gothic taste. The length is 165 mm (6.5 inches), the depth 65 mm ( 2.5 inches), and it stands 121 mm (4.75 inches) high. It has a good weight to it, it is in very, very good condition and it dates from around 1850. I have given it a clean, but I have not tried to over clean it.
