Canterbury

With origins in the 18th century, the Canterbury was designed to hold sheet music.  Earlier versions were often simple in design and more elaborate styles developed through the 19th century.  This low, portable stand was quite versatile.

It was a status symbol to own a Canterbury,  and it was thought one of the first ones was commissioned by the Bishop of Canterbury.  This one is rosewood with great carvings, a drawer and casters.
