Vintage Shelf Rail
This decorative brass railing is copied to match those originally seen on sideboards in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Later it was used on shelves as a plate rack, securing dishes.
This vintage shelf rail has many uses. It is handy in keeping books from toppling off book shelves, stabilizing bottles on a bar and useful in kitchens to keep plates and platters from falling. Its uses are endless.
This vintage shelf rail with posts is more impressive than pictured. Solid brass, very elegant with nice proportions.
Great brass railing, really classed-up my display shelf, ties in beautifully with other brass in the room.
