Countdown to Mother's Day - IV


Edwardian English Oak and Brass Botanical Letter Rack with Looping Handle (LEO Design)


We're counting-down the days to Mother's Day with an assortment of thoughtful gifts for the important women in our lives.  Order early and be sure to request gift boxing, if you'd like it.  We can also ship directly to your mother, possibly saving a few days in-transit.  (Please be sure to specify your desired greeting for an enclosure card to accompany your gift.)

Everyone can use a little help organizing, especially busy moms.  So much the better to help her do it with style.

This Edwardian English letter rack is made of brass mounted upon an oak base with handsomely chamfered edges.  A swirling bale handle emerges energetically from behind brass botanical panels.  Such a letter holder can be used on a working mom's desk or in the household: a place to sort mail, keep lists, save recipes, or store envelopes until they are ready to be mailed.  The handsome design elevates these otherwise mundane tasks—and will add a bit of visual interest to her office, den or entry hall table.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.

More nice Mother's Day gifts tomorrow and in the days to come.
