Antique French Louis XVI Style Daybed 1800’s All Original Paint and 24kt Gilding

About the Item

Antique French Louis XVI Style Daybed from the 1800’s. Every now and again we get surprised, sometimes it's good and other times you’d like to forget. We recently purchased this mid-1800’s French Louis XVI Daybed and it was kind of a pig in a poke, for we really had no idea what we were purchasing. Well, in this case we were beyond happy with the purchase, for in the last 30-years this is clearly the finest quality and most original antique French Daybed we have ever had the privilege to offer. The quality of the carvings and all the intricate finite details are simply breathless and clearly executed by a master French artisan. Cosmetically, the paint and the 24kt water gilding have never been restored or as some may call it, “paint enhanced”. For someone looking for a Louis XVI Daybed, you will be hard-pressed to find a better, more original example than the daybed we are offering here.

We have had our share of antique, or supposed to be Antique French mahogany Louis XVI style bookcases, however most tend to be constructed during the 1950’s.

The French Louis XVI bookcase was completely disassembled (makes for easy ingress and egress), hand-stripped to the bare mahogany wood, restored as necessary and refinished in this deep black Napoleon III style ebonized and brass exterior. One can only imagine what the house must have looked like, or maybe I should have said chateau, where this elegant Antique Louis XVI Bookcase...
