Retro Metal Folding Steps

R680.00 R408.00

How handsome are these metal folding steps? I don’t think I’eve seen such an attractive step ladder before, which makes sense when you consider they were made by the brand, BeautyWare! BeautyWare was one of the brands of Lincoln Metal Products, a New York based company that started trading in the 1940s. They produced all sorts of kitchen items, but are probably most famous for their really striking kitchen canisters. There doesn’t seem to be any concrete info on when they stopped trading, but they definitely weren’t around beyond the 1970s, and I think it’s likely that our steps date to their earlier years – at a guess I’d date our folding steps to the late 1940s, or early 1950s. Their condition is pretty impressive then, if you consider their age. They’re slightly rickety, but that has to do with the the way they were made, not wear and tear, and aside from some scuff marks, and  some minor damage to the linoleum, I think our wee ladder is in pretty great nick!

Dimensions: Open the steps measures 56.5cm tall x 34cm wide
