French Artisan-Made Oak Folding Ladder Chair or Library Ladder, circa 1900

About

From the region of Provence in southern France, this artisan-made oak folding chair is hinged so that it can convert into a step ladder. Iron straps with hooks allow for the piece to be secured in place both as a chair or ladder. When used as a seat, the rungs meet together below to provide a shelf under the seat. A piece of ingenious French design, this versatile ladder chair is functional as display shelves or as a library ladder, circa 1900.
