Here for sale is a fantastic antique stand or adjustable table. With brass plaque "Chinnocks Patent Screen", converts from a small table to a reading stand or screen. It has small holes where we assume a book rest was inserted when in use as a stand. Adjustable in height in the angle of the table and the position of the table relative to the stand. Fabulous original brass mounts and turned base. This stunning quirky and beautiful piece of 19th Century furniture is perfect to incorporate into any modern or traditional interior. 


When in the table position it is a little rocky. One of the feet does not match the other two so may be a replacement. A screw is used to adjust the height, this may not be original. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.


38 cm top diameter, 35 cm base diameter, height adjustable from approx 65cm at bottom position.
