Early 20thC Solid Oak Panelled & Hand-Carved Wall-Mounted Bedhead

$395.50


Large Early 20thC Solid Oak Panelled & Hand-Carved Wall-Mounted Bedhead

An impressive and intriguing piece, probably from around the 1920s and generally in very good condition with only minor and treatable cosmetic blemishes, with projecting moulded cornice over a plain frieze with 4 hand-carved tablets, each one different from the others, over 3 full-height panels that are thumb-moulded and have vertical ogee moulding & beading, over a thumb-moulded plinth, this remarkable bedhead will impress in the most elegant of master bedrooms, whether period-furnished or more contemporary in style, fully-deserving of the admiring attention it will surely attract.

Length 171cm x Height 83cm (67.25" x 32.75") & Thickness at the Cornice 7cm (2.75")

A large & heavy early 20thC piece, so you may expect a little wear & tear commensurate with age and normal use, including the occasional scratch & chip but nothing serious and, in all other respects, it's in very good, clean & sound condition, ready to be used in your home.

NB: It's fitted with 2 small brass plates for wall-mounting but I am not sure whether they would be sufficient to support the weight, as there are indications that much larger plates may have been used at some point.
