This is a really unusual metamorphic footstool, and has many practical qualities.
It folds flat for storage, or for use a low foot rest. It then can be opened out at two levels: first as a sloping foot stool, then as a higher leg rest. At the higher level it could also be useful as an occasional seat for extra guest seating.
It has an upholstered leather ‘seat’. The buttons have been replaced with new ones, which have been covered in contrasting material.
It has a makers label attached which says:
LEVESON & SONS,
90, NEW OXFORD ST. W.C.
& 21, PARK SIDE, KNIGHTSBRIDGE
& AT MANCHESTER,LIVERPOOL & LEEDS
