A pitch pine Wheeldon Patent, adjustable Music Stand.

The music stand dismantles easily with the tripod legs on socket joints, the lectern lifting off and the adjustable column reducing in height by loosening the collar. The stand has 4 cuts to the conical, hollow column that extends from the bulbous section that the legs extend from. This holds the main rod that in turn holds the lectern frame. It is adjustable simply by loosening the collar and tightening when the desired height is achieved. The angle of the lectern is adjusted simply with a chain and hook.

The design of this stand, made solely from wood and with out any metal fittings aside from the chain is clever. Once conceived, they would have been easy to make without reliance on third parties for supplies. The fact that it is wooden also adds to its attraction. Late 19th Century.

The maximum height is given.
