5ft6 Antique French Painted & Upholstered Bedstead – Ref. 96611W66


Classic Antique French Upholstered, Corbeau bed. A rare extra large double size from earlier 19th century production, this fine Louis 16th Style bed frame would have been produced in Paris, circa 1880.  Featuring a finely carved, painted Beech frame and traditional deep padded upholstery.  Fine, early beds such as this are very hard to find in big sizes now. Currently standing unrestored and awaiting further, direct customer instruction.  This may entail just a light touch cleaning type restoration and any attention the frame may need to support a new mattress and bedstead base. Alternatively for the price stated the bedstead will be fully restored including repainting and re-upholstery.  This would be to our customers specific instruction and to suit their personal taste and of course can be tailored to suit the pre-existing décor of their chosen bedroom.

Whilst specialist fishes such as gilding and deep buttoned upholstery in luxury fabric, may attract additional charges, this bedstead final price point could also work out lower, the less work we carry out.  Many of our customer find beauty in these French beds when they come complete with there ‘as found’ imperfections, equally as appealing as when we restore to our renowned high standards of fit and finish.  Which ever way, what we can assure though is whether its highly restored or sold with as little intervention as possible, they all have unique character, history and so often an understatement in decadence to0.  So, finish wise what can we say other than; ‘chacun pour soi’ scenarios.
