Rare High Art Nouveau c1900 walnut & quartered mahogany double bedstead.
Superb carved detail and fine figured mahogany panels.
The flowers I think are peonies but quite stylised so difficult to be sure.
The head board has a generous sweeping curve back towards the top.
Many items claim to be Art Nouveau but there are few true pure pieces on the market.
Classic Ecole de Nancy and came from Nancy itself (North East region of France)
Likely retailed by the Maison de l' Art Nouveau in Paris at the turn of the century
The bed will take a longer than standard double 135 x 200 cm mattress
The frame is fitted with new wooden slats and centre bar
The frame is 146 cm wide down the main part but 157 cm wide at the feet.
