h. 50", inside w. 38", l. 71", outside w. 42", l. 77"


In good "as found" condition. The polychromed surfaces exhibit rubbing and finish losses throughout. The piece exhibits normal shrinkage, minor dings, losses and wear. The carving is crisp and of unusually good quality. There are some normal small chips and flakes to the edges of carved surfaces, and a more notable shallow loss to one finial, about 1-1/2" high by 1" wide by 1/4" deep. The upholstery is dusty and shows moderate wear. No rips or tears noted. There is a stained area on one of the bed's inside upholstered panels. The rails have been extended about 12". No bolts to secure the rails to the head and footboard are present.
