(It is widely believed that canterburies are named as
such due to the first object of this design being commissioned
by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the late 18th century.
Although the original format is believed to have had divisions
in both directions with the purpose of holding cutlery for the
dining room, things soon progressed and they started being
manufactured mainly for the storage of sheet music. In modern
times of course a Canterbury makes the perfect vehicle for
storage of newspapers and magazines. This particular Canterbury
is very slight larger than most and features good quality
construction. Perfect for storing those books and magazines
alongside the settee, or chair for easy access whenever required)
