Wonderful Wrought Iron Footman

No. R16516

Wonderful wrought iron (steel) footman (coachman) with bold cabriole legs with very rare women’s shoes as feet.

Note how decorative it is with matching pierced shapes front & top.

These were used to assist someone getting safely out of a horse-drawn coach as a step (which were about two or more feet off the ground).

Because they were all metal they were then used around the fireplace to keep a kettle warm near the fire, as stools and small tables.
