Antique 'Canterburys' are a good place to store books and magazines. The 'Canterbury' is just one of many antique pieces which are very useful in the modern home. They could be used for other things, sheet music or samplers for instance, but are just as useful today for newpapers or magazines. Please click on images to enlarge.
Early 20th Century Canterbury Magazine Rack made by Howard and Sons of London
Very fine quality 1920s mahogany Canterbury made by Howard and Sons. This magazine rack is very well made with mahogany lined drawers and precision dovetails. The turned detail to the legs, spindles and handles is very fine and the casters are very pretty gilt brass. This Canterbury is shown as it came to us unrestorerd in these photographs. It will look wonderful when our restorers have finished polishing it with beeswax.
Please ask about restoration and delivery options.
