Metamorphic library chair c.1820

An English  Regency period  metamorphic library chair c.1815 with ‘sabre legs and scroll elbows’. Mahogany with lovely old patina, caned seat and back.

An elegant example of a rare chair, first invented by Morgan and Sanders of  Catherine St, The Strand, London thence  published in Akermann’s Repository of the Arts, July 1811.

The chair unfolds from a caned bergere,   by the push of a button into a set of library stairs. With its old patina, massed reeding, overscrolled top and caned seat and original gilt brass finials / feet this is a fine example.
