Copper and Wrought Iron Magazine Rack*
Old Arts & Crafts magazine rack fashioned from wrought iron and copper with a hand hammered finish and a stylised motif on both sides that attributes it to J & F Pool of Hayle.
The blackened wrought iron frame incorporates a twisted section for the handle and supports the copper element which is wrapped around the front, back and base, being neatly folded over at the edges.
At some time in the past the original feet have been replaced with little wooden bun feet, but these are nicely in keeping with the general style.
A good size, the two compartments being wide enough to hold several magazines and papers at any one time.
Circa 1910-15 and measuring approximately 41 cm between the extremities of the handles, by 16 cm wide and 30 high. The condition is good, commensurate with age.
