Lovely antique hand carved book slide. Dating from the turn of the 19th century to early 1900s, of continental Europe origin , it has a beautiful Art Nouveau design to the carving, which is delicate and high quality; sinuous foliage and flowers. It is solid blond hard wood – sycamore or maple.

The book slide has sturdy brass hinges attaching the folding sides (quite often the hinges are a bit flimsy on these book racks but this one is strong and the side panels will keep the books in place). It is also of a neat size so would be very useful where space is limited.

The sides slide out to a total expanded length of 12 inches (21cm).

The book slide is in excellent condition, just very light surface marks reflecting its antique patina.

Such a pretty piece that would adorn a table top, desk top or shelf.
