This majestic example of the revival of the Henri II style that occurred during the waning years of the Napoleon III period is a superlative example of fine French craftsmanship executed in one of the world's premier furniture woods~ coveted French walnut! The arched bonnet on the headboard, with an intriguing stylized shell relief, is crowned with an heraldic crest, leading the eyes down past the tailored cornice to the pair of tapered and finely turned columns with spiral flutes. The footboard mirrors the headboard but adds a finely carved foliate across the main panel, anchored with plinth blocks and trimmed with fine molded detail.
