19th Century Metamorphic Library Table/Steps
A rare 19th Century mahogany metamorphic library table/steps, with two dummy drawers having original brass handles and raised on tapering ring turned legs. When opened the hinged top reveals tooled olive green leather surfaces. The removable brass pole aids ones stability when using the extended steps. When not in use this pole is housed under the table. When closed, this superb Victorian table with its rich colour and patina, is an excellent side, occasional or writing table. The condition is very good, the table stands solidly and does not wobble. The table has not been repolished, therefore there are a few minor marks to the top, these do not detract and are not detrimental in any way. We feel that the original patination adds to the character of a piece and should if possible be retained. A rare and unusual piece of 19th Century library table that would be a wonderful addition to any interior.
