Black Forest sliding book stand
This is a hand carved sliding book rack from the Black Forest region of Switzerland, circa 1900. It has a dark patina and beautiful detailed carvings of bunches of grapes and vine leaves among vine branches. The hinges hold solidly upright and the sliding mechanism is very smooth.
Apart from small nicks to some of the leaves, it is in wonderful antique condition.
