I was truly pleased and delighted when I was contacted by Sterling Pear to do a review on a set of their Mantle Clip Stocking Holders. I found their Mantle Clips to be some of the most elegant that I have found recently. Since the boys just got new stockings, I have been shopping around for new stocking holders. The selection of Stocking Holders that Sterling Pear offers is so fashionable!
With so many ornate stocking holders to choose from at Sterling Pear, choosing a set was really not too easy. We finally decided upon the Holly Leaf design in the Antique Brass. Since we don't have a fireplace with a mantle in our living room, the stockings go on the piano on Christmas Eve. I needed stocking holders that looked just as refined as our one hundred plus year old antique piano. I have been looking at the department stores, but never found any that truly represented the feel that I was trying to find. Thank goodness for Sterling Pear!
The mantle clip stocking holders that I chose are more meant for mantles and bookshelves up to three inches thick. They can hold several pounds of weight, so they can support a stocking that Santa has loaded with a lot of goodies. To protect the surface, there are clear silicone protector strips on the insides of the clips. These Mantle Clip Stocking Holders - Antique Brass Holly sell for only $23.50.

Do you already have some very heavy stocking holders in your home right now? Do you have young children, babies or toddlers?

Some of these old stocking holders have sharp pointed edges, too This can be a hazard to your child! Here is a link to a story about what happened to one mom and her baby on MSNBC.
The stocking holders from Sterling Pear are meant to take the tugging that a child can dish out. They are designed so that the harder a child pulls down on the stocking, the firmer the stocking holder pulls down on the mantle and the tighter it holds. These mantle clips only weigh a few ounces and have rounded corners to keep your child safe from harm.
