Stunning early shelf brackets with organic, Nouveau lines. These shelf brackets are made (and marked) by the Art Brass Co who would later go on to make the San-O-La series. These shelf brackets feature rod ends for a towel bar underneath. Both the shelf and the bar would have orginally been glass. The brackets themselves were originally nickel plated, but that has worn away to a beautiful bright brass. Sold as a pair. Made of cast brass c. 1910.
Condition: Some surface wear commensurate with age. Minor paint residue.
