Designer John Danner Canton, Ohio Revolving Bookcase, Circa 1890s

Item Details

A circa 1890s antique revolving bookcase manufactured in walnut manufactured by American designer John Danner (1823-1918) of Canton, Ohio. This piece was created to hold and support the weight of an entire thirty-two volume encyclopedia set.

With retained bold maker’s mark or stamp retained, there are four casters to the base, allowing the piece to move.
