This is an amazing original early 20th century vintage industrial, three-legged dictionary stand. Comprised entirely of steel with original oxidized copper and/or "tiger stripe" plated finish largely intact. This is a unique mobile book stand & the tripod base contains three cabriole style legs with original steel casters. The midsection or shelf features a simple platform or bookshelf with raised edges. The stand was designed and adapted for supporting large, heavy and cumbersome books such as dictionaries, directories, atlases, etc. features numerous adjustments pertaining to height, width and tilt. The movable platform or shelf sections may be brought together or spaced apart for conveniently supporting an open position book of different thicknesses.

To save substantially on shipping, the stand will be shipped unassembled with directions. It requires no tools to put together and I'm sure was originally packaged this way.

Dimensions: 39" tall, base is 20" wide & the book platform is 20" wide when opened.
