Emulating the English taste, this extraordinary antique colonial bed was fashioned of rosewood, for a very wealthy Indian family. With bold turned finials atop the four reeded, tapered posts; the headboard with a pierced broken arch crest rail over horizontal slat fretwork. The bed is raised on robustly carved lion's paw feet. Note: has recently been modified to a standard King size.
