Decorative Vintage Hotel Stationary Stand marked for The Mercer, made by Reed & Barton. This stand has a pierced design on both sides, one side has slim openings which I assume is to hold two pens. Both sides feature a heraldic symbol engraved into a diamond shape of an arm raised holding an axe.
Good condition for age, the 1920's style ornate feet add a special look. Perfect for on your French antique desk, can even do double duty to hold napkins at the table. A fantastic addition to your collection of hotel, restaurant and cruise ship silver.
