(Legend has it that canterburies are named such as the first object of 
this design was commissioned by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the 
late 18th century. Although the original format is believed to have had 
dividers in both directions with the purpose of holding cutlery for the 
dining room, things soon progressed and they started being used mainly 
for sheet music storage. These days of course a Canterbury makes the 
perfect vehicle for storing newspapers and magazines in. This particularly 
nice example is excellent quality and has real elegance to it and unusual
being constructed from Rosewood. It is much more common to find 
Canterburies made from Mahogany especially in the early part of 
the 19th Century. Another sign of quality is the mahogany lined drawer and
the elegant shape plus carrying handle. It also stands on its 
original brass castors.)
