An Ormolu Newspaper Rack
This lovely piece has impressed designs on both sides that are identical.  There is a bird in flight surrounded by an oval of tiny raised bead work. The scroll work on the sides and top of the rack encompass all the borders. The rack itself has two divisions for placing papers. The scrolled feet protrude forwards and backwards to balance the stand. Excellent condition! The ormolu is bright and strong.
