CIRCA 1820 ENGLISH CARVED WOOD LION LIBRARY STEPS
- Source: eBay
Acquired from a San Francsico antique shop in 1982 (see receipt photo below). Like something out of a stage setting! Authentic Nineteenth Century antique library steps flanked by two carved regal lions. In very good condition. Original English leather and hobnails on steps. Little used. A few surface dings in wood. Some leather aging and fraying, but intact. Measures 23" wide x 18-1/2" high. Both steps measure 20" wide. The Old English look does not fit in our new desert decor. Needs a new home. Is a rare and fabulous find. Very Rex Harrison library-like`a la "My Fair Lady." Wood has wonderful patina. Piece has great warmth and character. No returns.
