Gothic Antiques from The Drawing Room of Newport
# 5159. A pair of Gothic Style letter holders. Size: 12" tall with base size 3" x 5". Circa 1845-50. Material: cast iron bases with stamped brass Gothic standards and brass figures. The bases are in the Rococo Style. Condition: worn gilt paint to the bases; mercury gilding loss to the standards; the angel figures on each upper level may or may not be original: they are attached in a different manner from the lower two figures. We have never seen this particular design in Gothic letter holders before and have had many over the years. These are rare items, especially as a pair. They would make a suitable pair of lamps if fitted on to a base and fitted for electricity. Price for the pair: $425.00.
