FABULOUS VICTORIAN SOLID SILVER WIREWORK LETTER RACK ...

Item Ref
JUIL96

This is a very unusual and rather elegant solid silver letter rack. It was made by the renowned Martin Hall & Co and is dated Sheffield 1897. It is quite substantial in size measuring 6 inches high and would look rather impressive on a desk. The wirework two sections letter rack is charmingly mounted on four small ball feet. It rests on a square chamfered pedestal base with a fine beaded border. The base is loaded making the letter rack very stable. The central carrying handle is tactile. It is useful and aesthetic and in my opinion very pleasing to use.

Hallmarks:

RM over EH for Richard Martin & Ebenezer Hall.

Date letters "e" for 1897.
