GEORGE IV ADJUSTABLE

 

MAHOGANY FOLIO STAND

 

England, c1820-30,

Attributed to Gillows :

 

Little appears to be written 'historically'

regarding the adjustable folio stand -

apparently introduced late 18th century

to accommodate the larger manuscripts,

drawings, maps, and prints of the time.

 

By 1820, a press had been developed to

enable printing considerably larger sheets -

known as the Elephant Folio, and the

Double Elephant, as the Audubon engravings.

 

These stands are designed to operate quite

simply, having two adjustable (hinged)

rectangular trellis-work rests,

connected to ratched legs,

allowing varied positions - from upright

for storage, to open flat - thereby

accomodating viewing at any desired angle.

About Millicent Creech/   Additional Gallery Services

 

 

 

M. Ford Creech Antiques specializes in 17th, 18th and early 19th century furniture and accessories.
Each piece is carefully selected in regard to quality, condition and uniqueness. Although our
concentration is predominately British, we also offer a small selection of Continental antique furniture.

The decorative arts include ceramics (early Chinese, Chinese esport, early continental and English to 1800);
a good selection of 17th - early 19th British silver, including flatware, hollowware and accessories;
and a small collectin of late 19th / early 20th century tribal rugs.


We also offer paintings by a changing eclectic mix of American and European listed artists,

with emphasis on early 20th century American East and West Coast Painters.
