#5124. A Newport Gilded Age Louis XVI Style Bed. Carved, Cained and painted. Size: 54" wide, 73" long. The headboard is 62" tall and the footboard is 27" tall. The feet are 6" tall. Age: circa 1900.Because of the curve in the caning the size mattress would be: 54" x 76" and would probably have to be custom made. Condition: the bed fits together correctly; one of the two side rails is bowed though it does not hinder the assembly of the bed; there are two punctures to the interior of the caining of the footboard where a mattress pushed in the caining. There are no other punctures to the caining. The carved ribbon crest was broken off at some time in the past and re-attched. Much of the bed is double cained with the exception of the large center section to the headboard. There was not a 'cottage' in Newport at the turn of the century that did not have at least one of these beds. If cained furniture is not to your taste, this bed could be easily upholstered. Price: $4,500.00.










The carved ribbon crest has been broken off at some time and re-attached.


Please note the bow in the top side rail: the bed still fits together correctly.


Note the circle on the lower left: where the caining has been pierced and pushed in: does not show on the outside as this is double cained.
