A superb, rare Irish George II Cuban mahogany readying stand, retaining excellent original colour and patina. The rounded rectangular top with integral book rest, rising on a ratchet support for easy reading. Below two swivel supports to each side for candle stands, the whole top can be raised or lowered to a convenient height with a wooden locking nut mounted to the column collar. The tapering gun barrel column, with turned rings and stop-fluting to the central section standing on a cabriole legged, tripod base with foliate scrolls and cartouche carving to the knees, terminating in hairy paw feet with concealed castors. A wonderful quality piece with a lovely mellow look and feel to the colour and finish - a rare opportunity.
Excellent. The reading stand has been waxed, possible minor old restorations. Excellent colour & patina.
From a private collector in London.
