Description:
French Empire Egyptian Revival Gilt-Bronze Day Bed, Paris c. 1890This listing is for a French Empire Egyptian Revival Solid Mahogany Gilt-Bronze Mounted Day Bed, Paris, circa 1890.  It features entirely solid mahogany panels, each of incredible weight, cast with a figural of winged victory framed in four five-point stars beneath finely detailed anthemion mounts flanking a round floral medallion, finished along the bottom with a pair of facing gilt chimera mounts flanking a bacchic mask - this arrangement is mirrored along the front of the bed.  

Each panel is topped by early 19th century urns, each exquisitely cast with intricate designs throughout.  Gilt-bronze sphinx candelabra figures finish the back of each panel, a hole for the candle between their wings, their sharp claws grasping the edge of the base - these complete the spirit of the design, but are only associated with the bed - not original.

The long columns along either side of the open bed form a full body, starting with a large and flawlessly cast gilt-bronze Egyptian mask beneath a full foliate wreath, over a square tapered column representing the chest-to-legs, decorated with anthemion castings over two fine gilt-bronze feet.  This entire form rests over a large gilt-bronze sphinx figurine.

We must emphasize the sheer majesty of the mahogany used to craft this work of art - these are not veneered boards, but rather entirely solid panels of mahogany and long bed boards of absolutely solid thick mahogany.  These are the most beautiful boards you can expect to find, cut and finished flawlessly to show incredible depth, and preserved with utter care to protect these from damaging sunlight and maintain unprecedented glowing reds.  

This is a rare find in condition that is above reproach.  Pieces of this quality command consistently exceptional prices, making this an investment grade collector grade antique work of art.  We are certain this is an investment you will be thrilled with, one to become an immediate family heirloom. 

Measurements:
Outermost dimensions:  84 1/2" wide x 45" deep x 41 3/8" high (without the mounts) & 51 1/2" high (including the mounts)
Inside bed dimensions (mattress dimensions):  75 1/2" wide x 38 1/2" deep

Condition:
Visually Outstanding Condition
1. Overall excellent color, finish in fine condition and quite early to the piece.  Light craquelure to the varnish.  
2. Only the most minor of dings and nicks, as expected in an antique, but overall in quite unusually good condition in terms of expected use indicators - clearly this was well cared for.  
3. Winged Sphinx mounts are associated, but later added and of inferior design to the rest of the mounts.  
4. Cast bronze urn mounts are associated but not original, probably circa the early 19th century.  
5. The figural mounts of Winged Victory on either panel are of the overall spirit of the piece, incredibly beautiful, but possibly not original - no extra holes observed.  
6. Light green oxidization in the details of the bacchic mask on either side panel.  
7. Extremely sturdy, heavy and structurally flawless.

Shipping:
Freight Shipping through one of our blanket wrap drivers is $350.00
Shipping a large piece of furniture to your doorstep can be a complicated task, but we do our best to take care of every single arrangement detail on our end to make this a seamless process for you.  Our customers have overwhelmingly told us that their primary concern in shipping is cost and quality of delivery.  

Based on that, we almost entirely utilize blanket wrap private driver carriers to complete deliveries when possible.  We get outstanding service from these private carriers, but we do ask that you be patient on timing.  Depending on the route, it can sometimes take four or five weeks for a delivery to arrive.  The drivers are often accepting additional items up until the day they leave for the trip to ensure it is a profitable delivery, so timing can fluctuate and they would ask that you are flexible. 


If speed is a priority to you, we have faster shipping options by palletizing your furniture, cardboard crating it and utilizing freight carriers to bring it curbside.  They are incredibly careful, and can usually get it to you with 10 business days of handling and 5 business days on the road.  However, this is a more expensive shipment and is not quoted in our shipping.  If you are interested in this option, we can get a quote together quickly for you.

Local pickup is free and welcomed but please remember that we are required to charge Maryland's 6% sales tax for any pickup. 

All of our quoted shipping costs are for shipping to anywhere within the Continental US. Hawaii, Alaska, and Canada must contact for a quote prior to purchase - all customs and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.  International buyers must contact for a quote prior to purchase.

Returns:
We do our very best to take pictures as if you were personally in the room looking at the piece, allowing you to effectively "visit" the piece over the computer, with the same experience you would have in person.  We quickly respond to all questions and are very willing to take extra pictures regarding specifics of the item to do as much to clarify any questions prior to purchasing or making an offer. We use the "Buy it Now or Best Offer" option with all listings to reduce the sense of urgency on the buyer's end and allow for as much dialogue as necessary to make sure you love the piece you purchase!  

In the event that you do choose to return, we offer a 14-day Return Policy from the day it arrives at your location.  In the event of a return, buyer pays actual shipping costs for delivery to their location as well as all return shipping costs - note that because we quote a flat shipping rate, we regularly absorb portions of the shipping costs to the buyers location, hence the actual shipping costs would be the responsibility of the buyer.  A 15% restocking fee will be charged for all returned furniture items.  Item must be returned in the same condition it left us.
