Anglo-Indian Teakwood Revolving Bookcase

Late 19th century

SGD 2,600

A British colonial revolving, open bookcase in teakwood. It features two square book-shelves each divided in four smaller compartments. At the outside on each side four  carved vertical splats. The bookcase revolves on a base resting on four brass castors.
The patent for the revolving bookcase, a way of storing books and saving wall space, was taken out by Benjamin Crosby  in 1808. This type of British rectangular bookcases was particularly popular in the Edwardian period.
