Clasped Hands Rack
From 1880-1890, be it clasped, holding a symbol, or shaking another hand, the piece conveyed loyalty. To some, it was a subtle way to display convictions. Much glassware has been discovered with lids formed into hands holding bars. Of course, this emblem has been representive of anti-slavery for centuries.
To others, it was a token of affection. Jewelry from a adored suitor would be proudly worn.
To us, it is symbolic of grace. All are precious, and that truth can so quickly be dismissed when looking in the mirror. Secure this demure set of hands alongside your sink as a reminder to give grace and have grace for yourself.
Hang hand towels, blankets or bracelets from antiqued rack.

We always look forward to your beautiful catalogs throughout the year. A very heart happy selection of things to choose from. When we order something, we know we have chosen something special. We are also very pleased how quickly our order is received. My daughter is restoring her new home which was built in 1903. Obviously your catalog is perfect for her project and my joy to buy her many magical things.

I love these! They add a whimsical twist on the towel bar. Fun “jewelry” for your house. Being cast iron, they are quite substantial. I’ve never seen anything like them anywhere else. Thank you Victorian Trading for carrying these.
