An exquisite classical American gondola sleigh bed in fine West Indies mahogany from the Federal period in Philadelphia, circa 1830. Inspired by the aesthetic ideals of ancient Greek & Roman furniture popularized during the Empire & Federal period, this sleigh bed features shaped sideboards with an out-scrolled headboard that is taller than the inward-scrolled footboard, and rests on shaped bracket feet with original casters. The beauty of the wood is enhanced with expert book-matching & through the play of the various grains that are visible throughout. Bed was restored using French polish in our workshop which further highlights the gorgeous choice of woods & the excellent quality of the design & craftsmanship. Comes with a new custom mattress that is five inches shy of being a full-size in width & measures extra long. Full XL bed linens can be used.
