This listing is for a vintage French wooden church book stand. This one is made at sitting level height. Please note it may take a little longer than our usual 24 hour window to safely wrap and dispatch this item and it will need to be dismantled.
Makers mark / hallmarks: none
Sourced: in Normandy, France
Age: circa 1920?s
Size roughly: 54 x 19.75 x 16 inches 95 x 60 x 34 cm
Unpacked weight roughly: 10 kg (specialist shipping required due to size and weight, ask about cheaper options if you are not in a rush, check we can ship to your location before ordering)
Condition: in vintage condition with signs of previous use, some slight wear to wood, dusty. Some scratches and scars. Good strong functional piece. Book rest wobbles a little on stand but just needs tightening up. Book holder piece was originally fixed in it’s middle to post. This has been re-attached at it’s top making it a little smaller.
NOTE: This will need to be dismantled for shipping. Note the last picture showing wood filler covering screws this will need to be removed to get the screws out. There are 4-5 of these covered fixing holes which will need re-finishing once it is re-assembled. Collection is welcome in Southern Normandy or East Kent without the need to dis-assemble. We can also arrange delivery between and around these locations without the need to dismantle.
