Letter Holder

Before smartphones, texting and Instagram, and even before radios or landlines, people communicated by handwritten letters (difficult though it may be to consider).  These letter holders confined one’s correspondence to a single place on a writing desk.  Still possible to be used for that purpose now, it can also be used to hold Christmas cards, bills or simply as a decorative piece in your home.  It is older than most like it, given the flat bottom and ornate feet.  The years since it was manufactured have added a bit of rust, but the design is still very distinctive.

c. 1900-1910
