Vintage brass magazine rack, decorated with a shield, knight and foliage, 1930`s ca,  by `Peerage Brass`of England.

This item has been gently cleaned while respecting the vintage patina and is ready to use.

This magazine rack with embossed heraldic patterns is kept modern with its minimal form. It would make a fun & practical addition to a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Traditional, Mid-century, Industrial or Contemporary.

Structurally one sheet of reinforced brass is bent into 3 sides. The ends are left open to keep the design `light` & modern. The arched handle and scrolling feet are complementary modern details.

At the centre of each side is an embossed coat of arms consisting of two mythical `martlets` either side a gothic cross. The bottom of the crest has a checkered pattern. At the top there is a profile of a knight decorated by scrolling acanthus leaves. The edge is outlined with a stylised heart pattern trimmed with a rope pattern banding. The rest of the brass sheet has a hammered finish, this enhances the polished & reflective tone.

Inside this rack is lacquered brown and there is an arching tubular handle in brass which secures to the base. The base is also lacquered brown and is stamped `Made in England`. Screwed to the bottom are two bands of brass which make up the 4 scrolled feet.

This vintage magazine rack is in very good condition with a gently aged warm antique patina adding character, and minor tiny marks in line with age.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care in packing. For safe transport this piece would be bubble wrapped & put into a box with loose packing fill ideal for posting.


`Peerage` was the trade name for the earlier company`Pearson Page` of Birmingham which is known to have operated pre-1900`s. The company produced original copper & brass ware with the height of production between 1910-1940`s. Their aim was quality period reproductions which were occasionally marked. Peerage Brass became the brand name after World War II until this trademark lapsed in 1991.
