This music stand is made from mahogany with Brazilian satinwood inlay and holly stringing, along with ebony accents. The desk portion is crotch mahogany veneer on a solid mahogany substrate, with satinwood and a custom made banding. The banding is made from holly and ebony and depicts the first five measures of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony in a pattern that repeats.
The desk is supported on a hexagonal post fitted into the turned column and fixed in place with brass and mahogany pins.
The finish is shellac.
The piece was exhibited at The Fine Furnishings Show in Rhode Island in 2013 and received an award as Best in Show – Traditional Work.
