Litany Desk

A litany desk with fixed kneeler is shown in 508, while 509 gives a side elevation of the desk illustrated in 510, with a collapsible kneeler upholstered with foam rubber on a plywood base and covered with cowhide. This memorial desk 2 ft 6 in (76 cm) wide, 1 ft 51/2 in (44 cm) deep and 3 ft (91 cm) high was made at the request of a client who asked for a primrose and ivy carved decoration to be incorporated for remembrance. Details of the St Mark's lion are shown in 509. As the central aisle of the church was fairly narrow the lectern was fitted with hidden ball-type castors so that it could be wheeled to a side aisle when not in use.
