DSF1124

Manufactured in the Edwardian era by J & A Carter of Great Portland Street London, this reading stand or table was part of their extensive selection of invalid furniture for "The Alleviation of Human Pain". Their furniture catered for the needs of the many incapacitated by injury following WW1.

A figured oak table sits cantilevered above a cast iron stand, designed to fit under a bed or armchair as required. A tilting and rise and fall mechanism allows the angle and height of the table to be adjusted for comfort, a small ledge prevents reading matter from slipping . A secondary round table is positioned just below, ideal for a reading lamp.

Also ideal for displaying a menu or as a reservations/reception table in a cafe or restaurant.
