We are offering only the beautifully carved mahogany headboard and two head posts of this antique bed, which date from the early 20th century. The posts, including their finials, are 92"h x 4"w, featuring ring and baluster turnings as well as tobacco (?) leaves on diagonals, terminating in brass collars at the bottom. The entire headboard, including the posts is 82"w, ideal to put against the wall as a backdrop for a double or queen-size bed. There is minor scuffing, also a minor crack in one of the finials. Note the extremely detailed carving of the pediment of the headboard as well as the posts. This bedstead comes to us from the granddaughter of a Hollywood actress and singer, Florence George Crosby, who married Bing Crosby's older brother and business manager. Who knows what fantasies might be associated with this bedstead?
