Description:

Queen Anne Turned and Black-painted Maple Day Bed, 18th century, the adjustable upholstered chair back between two molded and turned stiles continuing to square rear legs, on long seat joining base of block-turned legs and stretchers, modern seat above earlier worn leather upholstery, ht. to top of stile 40 3/4, lg. of seat 66 in.

Estimate $3,000-5,000

appears to be in good structural condition, free from any major replacements or repairs. It is rather sturdy. The earlier leather "seat" is well worn, and there is an accompanying upholstered piece of plywood which lays over the whole structure. The outside edge of the frame was once overupholstered, and is no longer. The chain on which the back adjusts is replaced. The painted surface is pleasingly dry and rather old.
