Art Deco Bakelite book trough or book stand. Item 4610.Made of black Bakelite, this award winning Art Deco book trough or book stand cleverly breaks down into four pieces which made it easier to post out to the original buyer. It was designed by Frank E Middleditch (1894-1978) in 1937 for the Education Book Company, to house a 12 volume children’s encyclopaedia. The width is 507 mm (20 inches), the height 228 mm (8 inches) and the depth is 222 mm (8.75 inches). It has had very little use, but has sustained a 30 mm (1.25 inches) crack to one corner, which is stable. It would date from around 1940.
