Stunning 19th Century Art Nouveau Cast Iron French Daybed

About the Item

An absolutely gorgeous cast iron day bed, made in France circa 1890, the deeply cast floral design with acanthus leaves and scrolls, it exudes early French Nouveau influences. The wooden framed cushioned bed base has been fully re-upholstered in a natural linen fabric, we have also commissioned two matching bolster cushions in the same linen fabric. There have been 3 historic weld repairs to the frame, these are barely noticeable among the incredibly intricate design of the cast frame. Each of the sleigh shaped ends sit upon the four original iron castors and the frame is secured with coach bolts (all are replacements of the originals), so the frame can be taken apart into 3 pieces, the base and the two ends. This is a very heavy and wonderfully decorative antique piece and would grace any interior. Measures: Length 196cm x Width 80cm x Height 98cm Middle Decoration is 16cm from the floor at the lowest point Each Bolster cushion is 21cm Diameter. This item can be dissembled for shipping with the following dimensions Length 196cm x Width 80cm x Height 98cm   The end upright panels (headboard/footboard) 80cm width 98cm height x 30cm depth The base 160cm length, 80cm width, 34cm depth   The upholstered mattress, 185cm length, 75cm width, 22cm depth   Weight estimate 70-80kg totally as one assembled unit.
