Michael Coffey Carved Wood Music Stand


This carved wood music stand, by Michael Coffey, represents an evolution in the sculptor's process. Always seeking functionality and beauty in his designs, Coffey attempted perfection in the adjusting mechanism on this piece throughout the 1970s and 1980s before designing this edition. As his only work sculpted in Mozambique wood, this music stand is a rarity.
