Review

Early 19th century Empire sleigh bed crafted from mahogany and mahogany veneer on oak structure. Sleigh bed is defined as a style of bed with curved or scrolled headboards and footboards thus resembling a sled or sleigh. The Empire sleigh bed was created in France during the Directoire era (1795-1799) and became popular during the Empire and Restauration periods. They were scrolled pieces, which were usually fitted with fine chiseled ormolu decoration.

Our bed displays an exquisite gilt bronze decoration featuring the sleep, composed of branches and garland of poppy leaves. The bed is attributed to Jacob Frères, and the bronzes to Thomire.

A "bateau" bed decorated with poppy leaves is housed in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Another bed with similar bronzes, attributed to Jacob Frères and Pierre-Philippe Thomire, was sold by Sotheby's in London in 2012.
