We are offering a very nice piece of Black Forest work at a very reasonable price. This folding expandable book rack has been very nicely carved to represent a wooden fence with several outside slats carved to appear as if they are broken. The carving is precise and tight with lots of details. It is beautifully done. When fully closed its total length is 12 1/4 inches. Its maximum width is 5 inches. When the collapsible ends are stood up, they measure about 4 5/8 inches high. With the ends fully extended there is approximately 15 3/4 inches of book storage space. The book rack is totally functional and very solid. There are the usual minor abrasions from use that have exposed some of the bare wood under the wood stain and finish, but this is minor and to be expected with an early piece such as this. There are no cracks, no significant chips, or nor missing pieces. There are a few spritzes of what appears to be white paint from when somebody painted a room without properly covering this item. The paint spots could be carefully scraped off, if desired. Overall, this is a great book rack that has survived well over the years. You will be pleased to display this on your desk or shelf, and by all means use it for its intended purpose.
