DESCRIPTION: A very handsome antique Chinese Yu mu (Northern Chinese Elm) bed with carved center apron and stout, inward turning horse-hoof feet. The rectangular top of this bed is inset with rattan, supported by strong woven webbing underneath.

This sturdy bed dates from the early 1800s and is in remarkable condition with no cracks. All the rattan and under-webbing in perfect condition; very solid and exceedingly beautiful. The last photo shows the bed with a custom made mattress (suitably firm for sitting or sleeping) covered in a salmon colored silk upholstery.
