Massive 19th Century English Mahogany Metamorphic Library Armchair & Bed Steps

MASSIVE 19th CENTURY ENGLISH MAHOGANY METAMORPHIC LIBRARY ARMCHAIR & BED STEPS WITH GILT TOOLED LEATHER STEPS
Over the 20 years that we have been in the antiques business we have had a number of metamorphic pieces, but none on the huge scale of this beautiful piece. The piece, which was acquired about 15 years ago from a well known and widely respected antiques dealer just outside London, is English and dates to the mid-19th century. Made of solid mahogany, it is a massive chair which coverts into an even more massive set of bed or library steps. As a chair, it measures overall 25-½”w x 28”d x 36”. It has a shaped back, beautiful curved arms, a massive seat surface measuring 23-½”w x 21-½”d x 18-½”h, and stands on four cabriole legs ends in padded feet. The chair has a separate black leather overstuffed seating cushion, which we believe to be original although we have replaced some of the stuffing. The cushion measures 23-½”w x 19”d x 6”h and is extremely comfortable.
The seat of the chair is hinged towards the front. The seat and the back lift and flip forward 270 degrees to the ground to convert the chair into an enormous set of library or bedroom steps measuring 25-½”w x 52”d x 29”h. Each of the four steps has an inset gilt tooled leather surface large enough to hold anything from a lamp to a set of books to multiple accessories. From top to bottom, the surface of each step measures 19”w (max.) x 10-¾”w (top step), 22”w (max.) x 10-¾”d (second step), 22-½”w (max.) x 10-½”d (third step), and 19”w (max.) x 11”d (bottom step).
Whether used as a chair, a set of steps or both, the piece will make a real statement in any room--certainly to be the envy of many of your friends.
Condition: The piece is extremely sturdy. It has minor wear, rubbing and minute scratches commensurate with its age. In addition, there have been two expert repairs to one of the arms which we have highlighted in one of the photographs. Please examine the photographs carefully for a full and complete understanding of the piece's condition. We encourage you to view enlargements of the photographs, particularly those with multiple images, and let us know of any questions you may have.SHIPPING: THE BUYER CAN EITHER PICK UP THE PIECE LOCALLY OR MAKE HIS OR HER OWN ARRANGEMENTS FOR SHIPPING.WE WILL BE HAPPY TO PROVIDE REASONABLE ASSISTANCE TO THE BUYER IN THIS REGARD AND CAN RECOMMEND POSSIBLE SHIPPERS UPON REQUEST.SEVERAL OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN VERY PLEASED WITH THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY TSC MOVING COMPANY, WHICH CAN BE REACHED ON THE INTERNET,AND THE UPS STORE, LOCATED AT 550 ADAM STREET, QUINCY, MA.
