A 19th century mahogany folding campaign book or music stand.
The stand comprises a base panel with a hinged book rest that has a pair of panels that open outwards to give a larger resting area.
The book resting panel has a flap to the base that hinges downwards so a book or sheet music can be placed with a pair of rotating retaining clips.
The base platform has two rows of cut slots so the angle of the rest can be adjusted.
The whole stand folds down into a slim oblong block.
The stand is in good working condition. (Circa 1840)
