Overall in excellent condition. One of only two “Prehistoric Sleigh” beds ever executed, this exceptional piece displays majestic presence when viewed firsthand. The sculptural patinated bronze surfaces present with casting and surface irregularities which are inherent to production. The patina displays a range of beautiful golden and metallic hues that enhance this unique form. This bed is made up of four parts which can be disassembled. The frame is suitable for a king mattress.
