An Early Ebony Boulle Bed
This is a very rare Empire bed that dips down on the sides in a scalloped fashion. The gold transfer work shows an abundance of plants and leaves as seen in the photos. The headboard and footboard are painted black on both sides and are slanted with a curve in the center. The mattress is original and the remaining bedding has a gray silk coverlet with antique lace on the sides with a matching pillow. A splendid piece for the discriminating collector.
Measurements: Bed is 3-5/8”h. x 8” long x 3-3/4”w.
Circa: First half of 19th Century
