This is a beautiful and lovely patinaed bed made from solid walnut at the end of the 19th century. This handsome piece is directly inspired of the Louis XVI era more or less a century earlier. The headboard is mounted with a heraldic-shaped medallion with pierced ribbon crest, flanked by foliage upon an gadrooned floral frieze. The magnificent footboard is highlighted by a stunning hand carved floral bouquet with tied ribbon. Both are connected with thick recessed side rails, all supported by tapered fluted legs on wheels. Wear consistent with age and use. Circa 1890-1900. Dimensions 63"high/ 57"wide/ 78"long. Mattress frame 52 x 72.
