A grand and impressive, large and rare Portuguese emperor-sized mahogany bed carved from copper hued Honuduras mahogany. The head and the foot are of the same height and each is centred by a large stylised, gadrooned urn festooned with bellflowers and flanked by two smaller urns flanked by pairs of tall decorative spindles. All are carved on both sides.

The scrolled and leaf carved top bars are surmounted by carved lattice work panels. The bed is supported on four sturdy cabriole legs resting on lion paw and ball feet. It is held together by four massive threaded bolts operated by a key.
Portuguese, circa 1890.

Preliminary images prior to revival of polish.
