What is a Canterbury piece of furniture?

Article Tools

A Canterbury is a low, open topped stand with slatted partitions, and a drawer beneath, sometimes with short legs on casters, designed for holding sheet music. Originally found in England during the 1780s, they were made in mahogany from about 1800, and later in rosewood and walnut.
