The Antique Canterbury was first introduced in the late Georgian period ca. 1780 and  got its name as it was first commissioned by the Archbishop of Canterbury. They were popular throughout the Victorian and Edwardian periods as occasional pieces of furniture that could be dotted around the living room. The antique Canterbury is a small and very decorative stand having divisions, originally used for sheet music. They are movable as they stand on castors with racks, drawers and divisions, now they are the ideal piece of antique furniture for the storage of magazines, books and newspapers. below are previous examples that we have sold but to see our current selection for sale please click here to visit our collectables category.
