Anglo Indian Extending Rosewood Book Rack
A very unusual and expertly carved Anglo Indian rosewood extending book rack. Both ends are carved in minute detail with cranes among grapevines. The extending platform sits on four typical Georgian feet, the edges embellished with leaves. A super piece in great condition, although two of the feet appear to have old repairs. Circa 1840. Measurements: 18 inches long, measured from foot to foot, 30 inches fully extended. 6 1/2 inches deep, again measured from foot to foot, and 9 inched tall. By far better than my photos would lead you to believe.
