England, c1825





The adjustable stand with two hinged rectangular slatted rests and turned ratchet supports sided by upright brass-handled rectangular standards above moulded splay feet having interior notched supports and ending in brass paw caps on casters, turned connecting stretcher


Condition : Excellent nicks and scratches appropriate to age and usage; one rest with well-blended reinforcement wooden dowels to the outside for a fracture that does not go through the wood


Note : I have always loved the trellis- and "transformer-" like form of folio stands.  But apparently not all agree.

I must quote this amusing description from "British Antique Furniture", John Andrews, Pl. 663 :

"Quite a different sort - a folio stand, the type that picture dealers have to have for unmounted prints, drawings

and watercolours.  A heavy utilitarian example which always seems to be in demand no matter how ugly."


42.75” High x 27” Wide x 27.5” Deep

The above showing well matched peg reinforcement to right and left uprights.

The split apparently went only partially through the staves.
