From our European Collection, a fine and very ornate cast iron letter holder, late 19th century, most likely French though possibly Italian or even Spanish, crisply cast with cherubs and other figures and very intricate openwork.
Size and Condition: 14 3/4 inches wide, 14 1/2 inches tall, 4 3/4 inches deep when opened. Excellent condition. Some minor rubbing on the periphery, and also on the facial extremities of some of the figures as shown in the photographs, but overall the wear is quite minor. This item was apparently very well-kept, and comes from the estate of a former New York based antique dealer.
