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!!!
