This is a superb antique Roycroft large book holder from the early 1900s Mission and Arts & Crafts period in excellent condition.
The piece is made of excellent quarter sawn oak with a good original finish.
The book holder is the longer size made to hold the Philistine publication.
There are two keyed through tenons at each side and there is a cutout at the bottom.
The piece is thick and well made and is highly decorative and collectible.
