Mid-century Modern Rail is both decorative and functional. This minimalist style railing is used to outline top perimeters of furniture, shelving and cabinets. It adds stability to items placed behind it such as books, china and nick-nacks. The posts and rod are made of solid brass. The brass is un-finished. It can be polished to a shiny glow or darkened to look old. Attach to surface top with screws.
