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. The late 19th-Century bookcase is composed of a compact unit that revolves like a modern day “lazy susan.” The piece also features a writing surface to the top, which can be set at an angle with a built-in support prop. With retained bold maker’s mark or stamp retained, there are four casters to the base, allowing the piece to move.
