27363. (commemorative mauchlineware letter holder) c.1900. “Grindle Point Light House, Isleboro, Me.”

27363. (commemorative mauchlineware letter holder) c.1900. Superb, rare wooden Victorian letter holder features a beautiful b/w lithograph image of the “Grindle Point Light House, Isleboro, Me.” A pretty little piece meant to hand on the wall to hold letter mail is of hardwood, varnished and measures 5 ½” high x 5” wide. The pretty image shows the tall square masonry light tower, keeper’s dwelling and fog signal bell perched on the rock shore. Such wooden Victorian era commemorative pieces, known as Mauchlineware, are exceptionally difficult to find and are beautiful for display. Clean, some light wear. (VG). $184 net.
