A rare Empire daybed à ‘l’ègyptien with a demilune canopy from circa 1815. Made of walnut with intricate carved decoration resembling gilt bronze mounts. The Egyptian heads and crocodile feet were painted as if made of oxidized bronze. The gilded stylised foliate decoration at the front rail are actually carved in wood. The canopy has only been recently discovered by the original owner of the daybed. Since then the daybed has been restored to its former glory, the canopy attached by new rails.
Newly upholstered with fabric from Leitner/ Austria, the wooden rails can be shortened on request.
