A Tiger Maple Daybed, New England, c.1830

Scroll down for 9 more photos

Originally, this was a much wider bed, a sleigh bed that was shrunken down to day bed size for use as a commodious sofa and/or day bed. The four supporting side members are all solid tiger mahogany of the finest color. The rails holding the two sides of the bed are tiger maple and later, evidenced by its lighter color. The panels within each end are bird's eye maple. This daybed is a tour de force of the finest solid tiger maple and weighs a ton. Rarely if ever does one find Tiger Maple of this category. Please view all the images; it's a true rarity. We have had a firm mattress, cushions, and bolsters made for this piece.

Height: 43 1/2 in. Width: 32 in. Length: 76 in.
