Description
A magnificent antique Quran stand dating from the late 19th century, ideal as a newspaper or magazine stand. This beautiful folding lectern, or ‘rahla’, was made in the Middle East during the late 19th century from intricately carved hardwood (similar to teak) and inlaid with mother of pearl. It has a section of script to the base and is cut from a single piece of wood, interwoven through slots so that it folds and unfolds. Although the form is of a Quran stand, these were often made for British customers for use as magazine or newspaper stands. These types of stands were also imported and retailed by Liberty & Co in the late 19th Century as illustrated in their 1860-90s catalogues. The carving and inlay on this example is particularly good. Construction/Wood: Carved Hardwood
