An Outstanding Ormolu Bed 
This piece is one of several special pieces that seem to fit together as a group. This furniture tends to have the same upholstery which is the fuchsia colored fabric and the matching bolster pillow. Also this group has the ormolu bamboo frame as seen in this bed. The frame work of the headboard and the foot board are strong and sturdy. If you have the book , Ormolu Dollhouse Accessories by Swantje Koehler, you can pick out the furniture with pieces that are similar to this bed- the parlor set, the chaise, etc.
This is what I would call the top line of the ormolu furniture. The beautiful ormolu trim work around the bed which we have seen in other pieces, like the fireplace, seem to accentuate the design and form of this exceptional bed. This bed could certainly be the focal point of a bedroom with its lavish construction and bedding!!!
