Oxford University oak book rest by Rogers

Price: £

Description: This finely carved adjustable bookrest dates to the early part of the 20th Century and is decorated with Oxford University's coat of arms - three crowns surrounding the motto 'Dominus Illuminatio Mea' - 'the Lord is my light'. The bookrest is in good original condition and the oak retains a pleasing mellow colour, however it would benefit from a nourishing wax, which it will receive before being sent to its new home. The reverse bears the stamp of Rogers, 51 High St., Oxford - James Rogers worked between 1880 & 1931 as a sculptor, craftsman in wood and heraldic artist. On his retirement, one or both of his sons (Edward 1877-1959 & Arthur 1880 - 1951) ran the business for a number of years. Measurements 30.5 cm wide x 25 cm high  (average depth when open 25cm)
