From the carved shell crowning the top of the ornate headboard to the sunburst pattern of bookmatched cherry veneer on the footboard, the Old World Queen Bed is a statement-making interpretation of traditional European design. Beautifully integrated into the Old World Collection, the bed's headboard and footboard feature picture frame carving, inlaid cross banding, and carved molding in a neoclassical bead-and-bobbin motif, all signatures of the Old World Collection's dramatic case pieces. The bed's four posts are finished with hand carved newel tops, and side rails are a generous 14-1/2 in. wide, fully dressed with shaped moldings and fancy face veneers. One modern touch: the footboard is purposely near bedding height to make television viewing easy.
