About

Beautifully crafted brass double bed by Italian artist Luciano Frigerio. The headboard and foot rail feature a wonderful heavy brass sculptural form interlocking loop motif with incised detailing in excellent condition The two side rails are finished in gold color powder coat enamel and are also in very good condition.

The brass posts,, side rail brackets and rails which encase the sculptural elements exhibit some areas of spotting and tarnishing to the brass finish unfortunately this is how genuine and unrestored examples are nearly always found probably due to excessive polishing over the years wearing the brass plate on these elements. The main important sculptural motif elements however are in excellent order and overall the bed still has great visual appeal. Please ask for additional detail photos.

This bed was originally designed to have an inset bespoke self-supporting box mattress frame which can be made to order.

Matress dimensions:
67.32" wide X 77.16" long X 14.17" high or
171 cm wide x 196 cm long x 36 cm high.
