I found this stunning gilt carved wood corner bracket/ shelf in Brussels, and I'm not sure if it is Italian or French, rather Baroque. It is rather heavy with deeply carved cartouche. It might have been regilded at some time, as there are few small areas which seem to have been retouched, however the patina is fabulous! It's carved of wood then gessoed and gilded except in the carved crevices, which give it such depth! Very substantial for displaying any treasure you might wish...

This superb toast rack has incredible lustrous embellishment! Quite fashionable in the mid 1800's as well as today to serve toast, properly cut on the diagonal. Marked with impressed HA, EA, FA, for the Atkins Bros., EPNS and their impressed mark with hand holding 3 lilys, also hand inscribed 497/oa(meaning 1st quality). It dates to mid 1800's. There are several small discolorations in the bottom that don't detract from it's beauty. I tried to show that in photo 3. It is raised on 4 lovely feet...

Charming toast racks were used in the 1800's always at the table for meals and certainly tea! I was delighted to find this one which holds 6 toast slices. It is typical of Victorian racks, with ball feet and ball in handle ring. I haven't found a maker's mark. It is a nice solid weighty feel to it. Still highly prized for its original dining accessory, it can also be used for napkins or even on your desk for mail! Measures 3" X 5 1/2" and 4 3/4" tall to the top of the ring handle...

Handsome pair of half round turned and fluted mahogany wall brackets, with great patina! This pair is carved of two seperate pieces of solid mahogany I love that they even have a little lip to the shelf round. Wall brackets add such great design when paired with paintings. Nicks and slight stains appropriate with age only add to their charm I think...
