The name Canterbury is said to have come from one of the Archbishops who liked mobile furniture, possibly a supper trolley but also an atlas stand and now the accepted music stand, which is defined by term. The music Canterbury was always supposed to be mobile, mounted on castor’s. The early form which appeared circa 1800 was a restrained piece of furniture with flat divisions.

This canterbury is taken from the pages of Loudons 1833 encyclopedia, with the use of a┬ámilitary laurel wreath and “flying” dividers between sections
