AN EXCEPTIONAL FIGURED MAHOGANY BED BY LOUIS MAJORELLE
"Pirouette", model no. 512; circa 1910
Item # 710GPP17 


This incredibly fine work of art is from the Pirouette collection by Louis Majorelle; it is unsigned, but we acquired it along with the matching dresser and mirror, both of which are identical to the bed and signed by Majorelle.  The suite is catalogued in Duncan’s work on Majorelle. 

A remarkable example, the figured mahogany is rich and chaotic with perfect matched grains that create the spiral effect the series is titled for.  Custom bronzes on each corner are exquisitely cast and expertly chiseled while sharp turned brass beading set in channels throughout the frame.  A pair of benchmade braces dovetail into either side of the frame to lend support to a modern boxspring, these probably added not too long ago.

For anyone that appreciates fine design and rich and rare materials, this bedstead is of self-evident superiority.  Check our inventory, as the signed dresser with mirror and nightstand en suite may still be available.
