Antique Victorian / Edwardian Heavy Brass Lectern with Inlay & Pierced Work (Code 2105)

  • £46500


Description

A late Victorian or Edwardian period decorative brass lectern. It has a pierced front. scroll formed sides and further decorative piercings to the back. The front has inlay in the form of scrolled leaves and fleur-de-lis. It is made from heavy plate brass and is very heavy and substantial. There is a ledge at the base to prevent the text or book slipping down. These items are often ecclesiastical in origin, but there is no religious symbology on this example suggesting it was intended for other purposes. The styling is perhaps that of the Pugin taste.

It would of course make a fabulous feature in an office or study and you could also use it to display a prized text or book. The weight is such that it will hold steady when in place.



Condition

Normal period wear and aging with some scratches etc. Inlay generally very good. Some of the screws are likely replacements but nothing you would really notice. Through the central spur of the front there are two streaks more copper in colour, perhaps from jointing of the plate.
