An Important set of Library Steps made in Oak for Gonville Caius College, Cambridge, circa 1840. Of fine golden colour they display in all carved elements the hand of ecclesiastical as well as secular craftsmanship typical of the first half of the 19th century, with free flowing curves and scrolls executed with flair and a natural feeling for the timber restrained only by the disciplines of the period. In excellent condition throughout they retain the original castors and are surmounted by a book platform as decreed beneficial by Thomas Sheraton.
