Antique / Vintage Oak Library Seat Folding Convertible Ladder Step Stool:
Antique or Vintage Library Seat that converts into a step stool ladder. We think the wood is oak, but it may be some other hardwood. It appears to be too hard for pine, but perhaps is maple. We believe its original purpose was as a combination chair that converts to a short ladder for use in a library. The dimensions are:Seat = 17.5" X 12.75"
Seat is 18" high
Back is 36" tall, 14" wide
When converted to ladder, it has 4 steps, and the top step is 36" high.The item weighs 15 pounds before packing for shipment.The wood has the original finish and stain, though it is worn in many places from many years of use. The top step shows some signs of splits at the screws (see photos). There is some modest amount of warping with age that causes it to rock slightly. We have not attempted to remedy this, but it can be easily addressed by applying a 1/2" shim to one of the front feet. This is a sturdy piece of furniture.Shipping to lower 48 states at a flat $25.00; free pick-up offered at our location in Edenton NC 27932; please ask for a quote on shipping if you are outside the continental US. !
