third quarter 19th century, the beaded and arched tester supported by four tapering cluster-column posts, the headboard with a fruit- and scroll-carved crest over a characteristic oval convex panel, the posts joined by scalloped rails centered by a cabochon-mounted cartouche.
h. 120", inside w. 62-1/2", l. 77", outside w. 76", l. 88"

Estimate $3,000-5,000

**In good "as found" condition, apparently an older refinish with normal scrubs, abrasions, shrinkage and wear.

The tester fabric exhibits a couple dark stains and a small tear, about 3" long.

There are a number of spots of lifted veneer on the tester and a few on the headboard. There are a handful of veneer losses to the tester, a few small flakes to the bottom edge of the headboard, and a number of losses to the rails, primarily the top flat edge of the side rails as well as some of the sides of the rails.

The board between the bottom of the headboard and the rail between the headposts is an addition.

There are a couple chips to the bottom molding on one foot post, one about 1-1/4" high and 3" long, and a shallower one about 3/4" high and 1" long.
