Regency Period Metamorphic Library Chair

About

A good example of a Regency period metamorphic sabre legged library chair. Very much in the metier of Morgan and Sanders. Fine timbers. Measures: As steps height 29 inches, width 19.5 inches. Seat height 17.5 inches. The Metamorphic Furniture of Morgan and Sanders At the start of the 19th century, there was a relatively short fascination with metamorphic furniture, in which the piece appears to have a single function but converts to another appearance and use with elegant ease. Patents for this kind of furniture peaked in the late 18th century and designs became more refined with the alternative function of the piece more cleverly concealed. The mechanical nature and incorporation of specialized hardware of the easily collapsible and transportable Army Navy equipage (Campaign furniture), which became so popular in the latter decades of the 18th century, was the natural predecessor of metamorphic furniture. The pinnacle of metamorphic furniture production occurred for about a decade after 1805 in London.
