This beautiful antique bed is a remarkable bedroom furniture crafted from mueche mahogany with bronze ormolu in the classic Louis XVI style! Elegant antique French Louis XVI Mahogany Queen Bed features stunning decorative elements! The mueche mahogany was discovered only after the wood was milled, and due to its rarity was highly desired by the finest cabinetmakers of the 19th century.  The detail in the intricate bronze castings could only have been achieved with hand-chasing after the bronze was removed from the mold, having been formed via the "lost wax" method.  Such bronze mounts rival the finest jewelry in their quality!  

Circa 1880s.
