condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Africa Mahogany Poster Bed
Beautiful Antique solid African Mahogany Barley Turn bed. Using the original bed rails this would be a full, also included are two wood rails to be a Queen. This bed was given to me by my brother whom worked for a doctor and collector of antiques in the 1970's. This piece and others were given to my brother as part payment for farming in the area. The bed had gold leaf and orange and green on the turns. A local antique dealer and friend in Eugene, mentioned his thoughts, this was a wedding gift to a couple. Making this a special gift by placing gold leaf and color to it. I took the task in early 1970's to refinish it with the help of my friend. In Roseburg Oregon was an Antique fair, taking a post with me. What I heard from the verbal appraiser has me shaking my head, and also concluded it was a wedding gift bed also going with the reason of gold and color. This bed is solid.
