Known as a canterbury (after the Bishop of Canterbury), this beautiful piece of furniture is designed to hold sheet music. Canterburys came into fashion in the late 18th Century in England, and were often crafted from mahogany, rosewood or walnut. They were seen as status symbols, since music was considered a civilised pastime, practiced exclusively by the leisure classes.

The canterbury features an X-shaped stand with slatted partitions, which tops the body of the piece. This body contains a drawer, fitted with two knob handles. The item stands on four turned legs, which are set on castors. This canterbury is a truly beautiful and collectable piece of antique English furniture.
