It doesn't look like something built in 1500 and I think the Musée d'Orsay doesn't hold art before 1848, which would be at the Louvre...
Hi Jacob, stunning photo.I've dedicated to you the post of the Amerigo Vespucci.
@ VP - I've gone back through our photos and this was taken at the d'Orsay. It was a "room" exhibit, perhaps a temporary one, and included an old wash basin which I plan to post in the future. Perhaps it was borrowed from the Louvre?I could be wrong about the date as I didn't write it down, but I'm pretty sure there was a plaque which noted it was from the 16th century.
There is a lot of furniture on display at the Orsay. I've never understood why it was there. At least, this piece looks like an objet d'art.
Intimidating bed....nice shot!
Unbelievable! At first I thought it was a chair. Greetings from San Francisco! We enjoyed going through your blog! Quite fun! Looking forward to following you!
Beautiful design, I like a lot!Léia :)
This is a Nénuphars bed, built by Louis Majorelle in Paris, between 1905 and 1909.
It looks like Art Nouveau to me, but it's gorgeous anyway!
I wonder if it was comfortable and if the pillow actually lookedl like that back in its time?
A most inviting looking bed. I hope the mattress is comfortable. Lovely timber.Cheers,Melbourne Daily Photo
Really beautiful! And a perfect shot!:-)
hello! excellent presentation..regards
Jacob, I have not visited your Paree blog in a while and look what I was missing. This wood in this bed frame is gorgeous and the carvings are not overdone. In regard to your comment about my fence. Yes, we had a good hard rain and a big gust of wind came with it. And I was worried about the tree in the front yard. Go figure. barb
This was made in 1902 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Majorelle
