Scroll down for 8 more photos

This canterbury is all complete and finely crafted of dense mahogany, which retains an early dark surface.   The casters are original and the dividers are finely stylized with a tombstone arch motif cut out of each splat and reflected above in the shaped rail.   It’s a fine period piece in excellent condition. 

For a comparative example that lacks this tombstone development, see attached example in black and white below.

Height: 21 1/2 in.  Width: 17 1/4 in. Depth: 12 in.
