Item:302973433763Beautiful 19th Century French Empire bed, flame mahogany with gilding. A bateau lit. Fits around a double divan. To be specific, there are 4 pieces: top, bottom and 2 sides. All with original bolts to hold them together. A modern double (4’6’’) divan and mattress fits perfectly inside. This is unusual for French beds from this period and makes it a really easy piece of furniture to use. The bed is heavy and sturdy and holds together beautifully even when there is no divan inside. As you can see from the photos there are lovely flame mahogany panels inset in the top and bottom pieces. The carving is beautiful and has been gilded –I am assuming this has been re-done at some point since the bed was made but can’t be sure. We bought this bed from a high-end antique shop in the 1980’s. It has been the source of many compliments and ‘wow’ s not to mention good night’s sleep. We are very sad to part with it but downsizing makes it necessary. We have never seen another one that was even vaguely similar and indeed looking around the internet this morning searching for some clues on price there was nothing like it. External measurements of the bed are: 150cm wide by 236cm long and the top and bottom are 120cm high. The standard double divan with mattress that we had in the middle of the frame was 135cm wide by 190cm long – standard size available in any bed shop. Finally, this is an antique piece of furniture and whilst I consider it to be in very good condition, it has signs of age. If you are looking for something that looks completely new this is not for you. As 4 pieces it is easy to move – the largest pieces are the top and bottom - they are 150cm x 120cm x 40cm.
