About

Antique king-size headboard, repurposed from an old Italian original gilded carving and it measures slightly over 81” in width and a king mattress is 76”. We mounted the frame to a wood backing with light padding and all of the gilded components simply unscrew from the backside, allowing for easy installation of new fabric.
