This is a handsome Book Stand from the second half of the 19th century boasting a stunning pierced carved embellishment centering a cross with the initial J.H.S (originally IHS Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus, Savior of men), Because the Latin-alphabet letters I and J were not systematically distinguished until the 17th century, "JHS" and "JHC" are equivalent to "IHS" and "IHC). This very piece is made from a nicely patinaed walnut and can be folded for easy transportation. Note minor scratches and dents can be seen here and there due to the age. Circa date 1860. Dimensions 17"high/ 12"wide/ 16"deep.|
