When he returned to America he had one of these chair and ladder combinations with him and he introduced it to the residents of Philadelphia. There, it became very popular, and even today it remains a, practical favorite all over the USA.

I built five of these replicas of the Benj. Franklin versatile, combination chair/folding/ladder & step stool for my grown children with the idea they would find them handy and useful in their homes in many ways. Now I find each family uses their Library Chair/Ladder/Step Stool in different ways:*
(1) Only as an interesting unique chair that is always a good conversation piece
(2) As both step stool and chair
(3) Set up as a step stool but steps are used as shelves holding knick-knacks.
(4) As a step stool with house plants arranged on each of the steps.
(5) As a drag-around kitchen chair and ladder used to reach dishes in their high kitchen cabinets.

But, now I can offer them to you from a manufacturer in USA at half the cost it would be for me to make them myself. I try to keep them in stock but if I sell the ones I have on hand, it may take a week or so for your order to be delivered. I feel quite confident you will like the quality and craftsmanship of this very practical brand new replica, (made in USA) of the Classic Benj. Franklin 3-in-1 Library Chair/Ladder Combination.
