Arts and crafts mahogany book slide. Folding bookshelf with carved thistles.

Beautiful hand carved folding end supports with decorative thistles (I think). One panel is in very good condition, the other is a little scuffed. Please see photos. Nothing that can’t either be ignored/restored. 

The carved ends are hinged and fold flat. When upright, they open slightly wider than 90 degrees, but still support books. The base is made of three sections. The central panel, with two sliding beams that have nicely rounded corners. 

In good, vintage condition. There is a small knick in the front or back of base and at one end. I think some of the finer elements of the thistle carvings may have some peaks and corners missing. It’s hard to tell with the age and the style of carving, but worth mentioning. Please view all photos for more details.
