Beautiful Napoleon Period “lit Bateau” in Mahogany with a french polish finish. This bed was made to be viewed from only one side (the other side was against a wall) and therefore only one face is decorated by two detached columns having its original ornementation of chased and ormolu bronzes.
The bed has its original casters and also comes with a-like new- mattress. If one wants to make it a sofa, it simply needs a top cushion.
