Mahogany Georgian Boat Shaped Canterbury

$2,915.27

About

A very good quality George III Period Mahogany boat shaped Canterbury having one drawer To Frieze with replacement brass knobs raised on elegant square tapered legs with original brass castors (It is widely believed that canterburies are named as such due to the first object of this design being commissioned by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the late 18th century. Although the original format is believed to have had divisions in both directions with the purpose of holding cutlery for the dining room, things soon progressed and they started being manufactured mainly for the storage of sheet music. In modern times of course a Canterbury makes the perfect vehicle for storage of newspapers and magazines. This particular Canterbury is a most elegant example featuring good quality construction. Another nice feature is the “boat shaped” design and the retention of its original brass castors.).
