This is a Case on Stand for the historic “Brown’s” Bible of the First Congregational Church -Ann Arbor Michigan. I delivered this piece on Saturday-The timing for Reformation Sunday was a happy coincidence although the Congregationalists are not specifically descendants of the Reformation.
Rift Sawn Red Oak, Quarter Sawn Red Oak veneer,Brass. Finish is Mica Powder gilding, Minwax Red Mahogany and Jacobean stains, Minwax Antique Oil Finish-Shellac topcoat.
The case on Stand holds this edition of Brown’s Bible of The First Congregational Church Ann Arbor.There is no date on the Bible but a specialist has estimated it dates from the 1870s which would make sense since the church moved to the present location about 1876.
Here is the opening plate from the Bible- click the link below to see more of these beautiful plates…Thanks for looking-Alan
