Antique 1800s Craftsmen Made, French Twin Bedroom Suite With Filigree & Elves in Headboard. Did not mention that my son make a frame to fit on these beds so a regular twin mattress would fit. This bedroom suite was designed and handcrafted in France in the early to mid 1800s.While on vacation in France, an American gentleman & his wife saw the beds and fell in love. She was impressed by the beautiful filigree on the tall headboards. The gentleman loved the way the craftsman designed the headboards so the burl looked like elves looking out over the bed. The beds remained in this home until the couple passed. They resided at this home again, until this owners death. Upon her death, her daughter inherited this exquisite suite. Having no place for them, she put them up for sale.
Suite consists of twin beds and a marble top dresser. It is on both the top of the headboards and the dresser. His designs are delicate and almost lacy.Some of the most beautiful workmanship I have ever seen. However, the most interesting part of the set is the very thing the old gentleman, and myself, loved, the elves. The way the craftsman did the burl on the beds. He made it look like, at least to me, little elf faces staring back at you. I love this suite but no longer have room for it. If you consider purchasing it, remember it was made in France and is not quite as wide as the twin beds made here in America. However, my son laid plywood on the beds so I could use an American mattress. This suite is beautiful and will be a great addition to any home. It is absolutely stunning and will be.
