An American Classical Revival mahogany day bed, acanthus-carved round top rails and posts with flame-grained paneled ends, plain wooden rails and carved vasiform or melon feet. Fitted with a cotton covered custom mattress with attached wood base. 36 1/2" H x 33 1/2" W x 80 3/4" L. Circa 1890. Provenance: Deaccessioned from a Southern historic house museum. CONDITION: Overall very good condition. Some shrinkage cracks and areas of abrasion to head/foot boards and abrasions to feet. Abrasions around brass screw covers suggest these may be later and that the original covers were larger. Some scattered white splatter to one end.
