Rare English Victorian Folio Stand, circa 1880


A very nice and hard to find example of an English Victorian walnut folio stand made during the last quarter of the 19th century. Used to display collections of art on canvas or paper. The stand is large but folds up and open to make a pretty impressive display. From the collection of a retired art dealer.
