#8 Gothic Book Stand

Book Stand, Charles Bevan for James Lamb (Manchester), Print, The Builders, 1869 p. 117.

#8 Manufacturers produced an array of products inspired by the Gothic Revival movement, this book case designed by C. Bevan could be inspired by William Burges' work . The book case seems to be polychrome and would it that sense relate to Burges. Owen Jones' work on the Alhambra (Moorish style) could also be an inspiration, especially for the details pictured on the print.
