The brass and bronze wall shelves that you find out there are almost always package shelves from train or trolley cars. Many are brought in from Europe. You must also be aware of reproductions, the first clues there being poor casting details and the use of Phillips type screws. Something else to note carefully is that most of these shelves were designed to tilt back, to better hold the packages. So they are not going to fit at right angles to your wall. These shelves are always of a nice large size and are therefore practical and desirable. LooLoo offers only the best metal shelves and due to high demand, our stock is usually low.
