Mahogany Canterbury Stand

This is a Solid Mahogany Canterbury Stand which would store sheet music, magazines or newspapers. There is a drawer for extra hidden storage space. There are four separations to hold what you’re storing in place and each corner has a small bulbous finial. For ease of carrying from place to place there is a center handle. The drawer on the bottom has two brass pulls and the Canterbury is supported by four brass casters.

Thomas Sheraton (1751-1806) appears to have been the first to record the written term ‘Canterbury’, the rather confusingly named music or magazine stand. In his Cabinet Dictionary of 1803 the name is referring to a distinct piece of furniture; what we know as the Canterbury today: a small music stand’ with divisions. Today the Canterbury has many more uses such as for magazines, newspapers or books. That’s the great thing about antiques they have many more uses today than what they were actually made for.

The original patina and rich warm brown color with brass accents make this a wonderful accent piece and quite useful. The size is as follows 19” H X 19” W X 13 ¼” D, dates from the 1920’s and is in perfect condition.
