Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The wheels move round 360 degrees for ease of movement in any direction. The wheel assembly has a finely balanced suspension which is just powerful enough suspend the feet above the ground in order to move the ladder around. Once the user places a foot on a step the whole assembly lowers to the ground and the step ladder cannot move.
The surface of the step ladder has worn to a good faded colour with surface rust beginning to show. This looks good to us, but of course the whole piece can be painted to suit your own interior design scheme.
As for the history, we we dont know if this was in a state of the art factory around 1900, or whether it was made for a municipal library or museum in the 1950s. All we know is that it is well made, with delicate proportions and it is a good sturdy stepladder that can be used every day as well as admired.
