Antique Early to Mid 20th Century Letter or Paper Rack – Ideal Vintage Office Decor

antique french 1800s white ironstone medium sized double sided poupon grey dijon mustard moutarde advertising pot

A rare find, this early 20th Century English letter and papers rack is a super piece which both looks great on display and serves and very practical purpose.

With a strong wooden backing, the rack compartments are made of tin, which are fixed in place with screws. It can handily store a large wad of letters or paperwork.

It’s an unusual item and would create an interesting focal point in a vintage themed office or room.

Originally, the lettering would have been a vivid red colour, and the foliage contrasting in black. This colouring has now faded (with just some still visible) but it’s still a very good looking item.

The letter rack is in good condition for its age. Originally, there would have been two attachments to fix this to a wall. These appear to have been replaced by one, which is centrally located. There are some old cracks to the wood and a few scuff marks where it has been knocked over the years, but otherwise it’s a great piece which has many more years’ use left in it.
