Circa 1850-70. Superb, all original burled walnut Canterbury. As fine as they come, this large elegant English Canterbury features beautifully pierce carved panels around the the bottom and an equally fine pierce carved and shaped gallery around the top. The corner posts linking the sections are an extra fine barley twist ending in acorn topped finials. The base is a deep inwardly curved, large single drawer, covered in a wonderfully decorative figured burled walnut. The top shelf is also done in fine figured walnut. Besides the drawer and shelf there are three good sized sections that can be used for books, magazines, prints or sheet music. Exceptional good looks and rarely seen excellent original condition make this an extraordinary find. We have re-glued and very lightly cleaned and polished this fine antique and it is ready for use in any setting. Excellent form and function, beautiful color and patina. 35" tall x 24" wide x 18 1/2" deep.
