Antique Victorian Mahogany Metamorphic Library Step Chair
Secure Payments By
A fantastic set of mahogany metamorphic library steps dating from the late Victorian period. Superbly well made and such a quirky piece of furniture. It's a simple design with a nod towards the gothic revival style with small pointed roundels and cut out shapes in the back rails. Each step is covered in old carpet for extra grip and extra character! It transforms easily in one movement from chair to steps. There is a small metal latch on the side which holds it in place as a seat. The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions just ask

It is in good original condition with a nice patina. The joints are strong and the whole piece is sturdy. There are some small knocks and minor marks and signs of age and use but nothing detrimental. The hinges have been replaced and the surrounding wood repaired at some point but overall it displays very well and has been cleaned and polished and is ready for use.
