Product Description

Victorian Walnut Turned Canterbury.

A charming and rare piece.

This is a marvellous example of an antique Walnut beautifully inlaid Canterbury made around C1870. The Canterbury was first introduced in the late 18th Century Georgian period and got its name from the first commissioned piece by the Archbishop of Canterbury for storing sheet music. The Canterbury was popular throughout the 19th Century Victorian and later Edwardian periods in Britain as an occasional piece of furniture that could be used in the living room.
This superb Canterbury is completely original and has its original polish throughout complete with its lovely lightly faded original colour showing patina and character. This antique Canterbury is very decorative having burr walnut and boxwood floral inlays and stringings to the top rim complete with 4 turned finals to each corner and 24 ornately turned division supports. It has three divided compartments which are perfect for magazines, books and newspapers. The base contains a quality slim dovetailed constructed drawer with turned knobs which works smoothly and is clean inside. The drawer could provide the perfect storage solution for remote controls. The whole piece stands on finely turned legs with its original polished Brass castors on brown porcelain wheels, so can easily be moved around the room.
This fine piece of antique furniture would make an elegant addition to any home as it is small and decorative but also provides very useful storage.
We have sympathetically restored this item maintaining original patina by just carefully cleaning and waxing this item to enhance the French polished surface and preserve it for many years to come.
This stool is in amazing condition for its age as shown by the photographs however being an antique item of this age there are blemishes and scuffs here and there which we feel adds to its originality and heritage.

  • Victorian Table

    I bought a restored Victorian table from here. When it arrived, it was wrapped incredibly well in bubble wrap, and had obviously been recently polished. It was immaculate. Friendly service, and a good price. Would definitely use again.
