Object Description

A Good Quality English Early 19th Century Regency
Period Mahogany Boat Shaped Canterbury Having
Elegant Square Supports Over One Frieze Drawer
With Replacement Brass Knobs Raised On Turned
Legs With Retaining Original Brass Castors

(It is widely believed that canterburies are named as
such due to the first object of this design being commissioned
by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the late 18th century.
Although the original format is believed to have had divisions
in both directions with the purpose of holding cutlery for the
dining room, things soon progressed and they started being
manufactured mainly for the storage of sheet music. In modern
times of course a Canterbury makes the perfect vehicle for
storage of newspapers and magazines. This is a nice, clean,
elegant example and is good quality constructed from nice
Mahogany. Another nice feature is the “boat shaped” design and
the retention of it’s original brass castors.)
