Description

This is a late 19th century desk or table top mahogany revolving bookstand by Shapland & Petter. The bookcase has four vertical panels of Art Nouveau inlay and four small inlaid squares top surface.

The bookcase sits on a circular plinth base with a central spindle.

Shapland & Petter was established by Henry Shapland (b. 1823), a cabinet maker by trade.

In 1854 he began a cabinet making business in one room at the Raleigh woollen mill in Pilton. Later the firm moved to Bear Street in Barnstaple. Henry Petter was an accountant who entered into partnership with Mr Shapland. The business progressed and in 1864 they bought the Raleigh Factory where Shapland first began his work.
