Circa 1830, set of 3 thread mahogany commode steps. The top thread has a solid mahogany frame, where a carpet insert is hinged and opens to reveal an uninterrupted interior. The next step is hinged and also pulls forward and houses the commode. The freestanding steps are in flame mahogany and polished on the front, sides and back, and the threads are of a generous size. Beneath the bottom thread is a deep apron in flame mahogany and beneath this again a simple ogee moulding. The whole piece stands on 4 turned and twisted mahogany squat feet. The provenance of this piece is Forter Castle, Perthshire.
