Decorative cast iron shelf brackets have been used throughout the ages to provide both support and a unique style flare to traditional shelving units. These supports are reliable and sturdy yet often feature intricate Victorian Era style features. From swirls and flowers to roosters and abstract designs, the options for style are endless. Because of their attractive and detailed nature, they remain popular decorative features today. Their well-designed and often dark appearance allows them to work well with any theme or décor that already exists in a home, office or another workspace.
