We have a Metal Desk Storage File Vintage Item 2 tier vintage letter/file tray. The top tier is narrower than the lower tray. The top measures about 6 1/4" in W x 12" in D x about 2 1/2" in H on the sides, the bottom one measures about 9" in W, 12" in D & 2 7/8" in H on the raised side. The height of both trays together is about 7 5/8". The metal is similar to a grate - it does have some edges which will catch and are a bit sharp on the cut corners. It has been painted a medium blue (a bit darker than colonial blue) and has some spots here and there of missing paint - it would be easy to spray paint. There are a few spots of rust peaking through. Overall this is a very nice piece to use as is or give a bit of TLC.
