19637 Victorian Burl Walnut Marble Top Bed Set – Jenny Lind
We are pleased to be offering today this beautiful two piece Victorian burl walnut early marble top bedroom set that dates from the 1870’s era. It is a nice set that came out of a home out of New Hampshire. The people have owned it for quite a few years and didn’t want to part with it, but they had to liquidate due to a divorce. This consists of a large full size style bed and a four drawer marble top fancy mirror back dresser. They have burl panels. The dresser has cookie corner marble top, carved columns, carved handles, burl walnut accent panel on the back of each hand cut dove tail drawer, a fancy hidden drawer in the base, ditty boxes and candle shelves. The bed is really nice being 55 inches wide and 74 inches long for mattress purposes. It will squeeze a modern day full size mattress in with little effort. The bed has a real large Jenny Lind Victorian maiden head carved crest, open fretwork that is in nice condition, flared pierce cut top crest, corner block finials, incise carvings and center carved medallion that has one piece of carving broken off on the circle right about where 6 o’clock would be. The set is in real nice condition and it needs small tinkering. The tinkering is minor little pieces of carving that have fallen off over the years and they will need to be recreated like buttons and trim supports on the candle shelves. It is in amazing shape for the age. The overall size of the bed is 57 inches wide on the outside, 55 inches wide by 75 inches long inside the rails, 36 inches high on the footboard and 89 inches high on the headboard. Just to give you an idea, the finials on the headboard are 9 inches tall and 5.5 inches wide. The size of the solid walnut hand carved Jenny Lind is approximately 9 inches high. It is in really nice condition. The marble top cookie corner dresser is 47 inches wide, 20 inches deep, 32 inches high to the base and the height to the top of the crest on the swivel mirror is 55 inches high. The overall height of the dresser is approximately 86 inches high. The marble is white and gray grained cookie corner with a wide ogee bevel edge. The mirror is attached by the holes in the marble where they screw down and pin in like the old Victorian ones did. You get the two piece set for one money.
