England, Circa 1870
A carved walnut and parcel gilt folio stand, in the reformed or 'muscular' gothic style. Furniture in this style took inspiration from the primitive, pointed gothic of 13th century Burgundy, and were chunkier and more robust than earlier gothic revival pieces. The present example shares many characteristics with works by the designer Charles Bevan (active 1865-1883), who for example used quatrefoil inlays and robust columns, turned at the centre point.
