This fabulous and unusual warm brown wooden paper or book holder has a tinted inlaid marquetry oval scene in the center, which looks like a boy who is standing casually holding his equipment. I'm not sure of the purpose of this piece - maybe it is an architect's tool, maybe a desk accessory, who knows. I do know it would make a wonderful addition to a desk, a coffee table or as a gift to an architect or designer. It is extremely long and measures 17.0 inches long x 1.75 inches wide x .25 inches deep, and has one straight edge and one beveled edge. The wood is a beautiful brown, and it is in good antique condition with a few scratches from normal age and use on both sides. The back is solid wood with lovely tones throughout as well.
