This is a "Dann's All Steel Book Holder" Dictionary Stand made by the Union School Furnishings, Co circa 1916. It is made of metal that has original iodized copper striped finish throughout. Most of these are still quite visible but some discoloration from cleaning attempts and aging are present but located mostly under where books would be placed. The stand, overall, is in very good vintage condition and fully functional. The three cabriole style legs that make up the tripod base still have original steel casters. This stand was designed and adapted for supporting large, heavy and cumbersome books such as dictionaries, directories, atlases, etc. It features numerous adjustments pertaining to height, width and tilt. The movable top platform sections may be brought together or spaced apart for supporting an open position book of different thicknesses. A really cool piece that would add a lot of vintage industrial style to any room and give you finger tip access to a printed dictionary.

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.
