Item Ref



A rare and unique Austrian single bed, made by the factory Leopold Walter in Vienna, where they specialized in patent furniture and brass and metal castings.
This bed was made around the turn of the 19th to 20th century, Art Nouveau in style and can be dated between 1905 and 1910.
The decorative paint on the front head board and foot end are exquisite, still very vibrant and in good age related condition. The subject, a floral arrangement of old fashioned pansies and violas in stem, bud and flower executed by an experienced Art Nouveau trained artist. Many typical Art nouveau swirls and gilt embelishments complete the picture.
It is very lovely...
The metal work is not damaged, there are no repairs and the sides slot onto the fixings perfectly, making the bed very usable.
The inside mattress size is a standard width, 36 3/4 " and a 73" length, slightly shorter than a modern length.
There are some cast iron finials on all four bed posts and a centre cast crown to further decorate this rare bed.
Also, the base has been protected with cast iron stylised escargot feet, riveted seamlessly into place.
The side rails carry little loops, all intact, to accommodate a strung mattress support.
As this bed is named and styled, it was actually passed by the museum authority in Austria to clear for museum use, ie it was not quite as perfect as they wanted for exhibition.
A unique opportunity to own a near museum piece...
