First Empire Period "Lit Bateau" Daybed
France Ca 1810
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 ornamentation 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.
