A 19th Century bobbin and fretwork Quran stand

This very beautiful stand is wonderfully carved with a rich patina. Originally designed to hold the sacred Quran, these were also made in the late 19th century for the colonial market as superb magazine, book or picture stands/racks.

This is a large floor standing example.

These types of stands were also imported and retailed by Liberty & Co in the late 19th Century as illustrated in their 1890s catalogues. The work on this example is particularly lovely with the arched supports and individual turned bobbin fretwork.
