Victorian Folding Book Slide.
This is a nice example of a Victorian bookslide, made from mahogany and embellished with pierced brass decoration; which also has fine engraving to add to the quality of this piece. This could also be used on a desk, to keep a small number of reference books together.
The wood and brass are both in good condition with no slits or cracks, the hinges are original and work well, the book slide extends by pulling the two edge sections apart, this is in good working order.
Dimensions when closed: 33cm x 13cm
