Circa 1870, stylish Victorian French walnut and ormolu mounted king size bed. The headboard is capped with an ormolu reeded bezel and beneath this is an ogee crossbanded section. The canted corners have large ormolu mounts above an inlaid section and at the base is a wonderful cast foot with leaves ending on a heavy realistic foot. The centre is upholstered with damask in good condition. The tailboard has similar upholstery and at the base in the centre is a shaped apron with a large ormolu mount. The side rails are veneered in walnut and have ormolu mounts at each end where they join the bed and dipped centre with an ormolu mount the same as the tailboard. Impressive piece of furniture, very stylish and good size.
