Circa 1880, good set of pine library steps. The steps are set into a single cut out piece of wood. At the side of each of the treads the solid piece is cut in a wave pattern and there are unusual stretchers on the bottom also in the form of waves with 2 little apertures in the centre. The uprights are turned and below the top step there is another shaped apron. On the top step there is a small finial on the right and a pitch pine turned pole holding arm which is finished with a similar finial. The colour and patination on the pole is excellent. The polish on the steps has almost gone from use. The shelves are sturdy and usable.
- 189cm high (104cm to top step) x 60cm wide x 74cm deep.
