An Exceptional Boulle Bed
The Ebony Boulle bed has gold transfer work on black of exotic animals and scroll work! The bed is an Empire or sleigh bed and has low deeply cut sides and high ends. It is made up as a Day Bed with bolster pillows at each end with tassels. The ends of the bed are lacquered black and are curved. The feet on the bed are all original and painted to resemble an animal’s foot! I have seen sofas with this type of foot, but they are often broken and replaced. I also have seen this same bed made up as a regular bed with a mattress and bedding. A fine and rare piece for your collection.
