Scroll down for 6 more photos

This Canterbury is composed of vibrant flamed mahogany with curvatiously shaped lyres bookending the dividers.  The mounts and casters are original, and its in a fine condition.

Also, decoratively speaking, we have used this personally with a beveled glass top working nicely aside a single armchair, so it functions as a low table.  A related canterbury offered by Shaker Square Antiques of Ohio can be seen in the following attachments.

Height: 17 3/4 in.  Width: 18 1/2 in. Depth: 13 3/4 in.
