4 PCS BEDROOM SUITE
Amazing Details in Walnut & Burl Walnut, circa 1880's
WOW !! Can you say Awesome, Exuberantly Carved, Exquisitely Appointed, Exceptionally RARE example of the Most Ornate Aesthetic Movement creations ever produced? "Today relatively little remains of the highest expressions of the Aesthetic Movement Designs" ( 1.)
"Generational Sharing" has caused many sets to be divided/separated~~making it difficult to find complete sets.
This Ouststanding Victorian Aesthetic Half Tester Walnut & Burl Walnut 4 piece set has been conserved in a most favorable manor and held in one family for the majority of its existence. The four pieces, a very fine half tester, matching Armoire and mirrored back washstand & Dresser are an absolutely matching Victorian Aesthetic Half Tester Bedroom Suite.
Features including the liberal use of fine burl is amazing, the stepped out, (hooded) crests on all four pieces makes an exceptional impression, the fine ornate & reticulated cartouches have bountiful carvings and a burl roll on each, the burl columns with delicate capitols are outstanding, and the many carvings, birds, lions, and floral & leaf carvings are prolific. The Tester support arms are very substantial and also display the bird, lion, and floral carvings. The Headboard features a magnificent burl panel flanked by carved panels, beautifully executed side rails and conforming oversized foot board. The footboard alone weighs about 60 lbs and is seven + inches thick. The mirrored back washstand & dresser display brown Tennessee marble tops and the same original ornate brass hardware, other expceptional recessed burl panels, burl rolls, and super fine carvings. The three case pieces display fine original beveled mirrors.
We are proud to present this Awesome Victorian Aesthetic set in original finish condition. We have observed only minor distractions consistent with age and a slight difference in finish tone due to the differences in sunlight exposure. The Armoire comes with two original tasseled keys.
