Elizabethan Tester Bedstead
Brought to America by famed architect Addison Mizner for his last Palm Beach estate, Casa Nana. It is reported Mizner traveled to Europe to meet his friend, the Duke of Alba, ferociously purchasing rare antiques to decorate his lavish estates.
This magnificent Tester Bedstead is of Western European origin and testing is currently ongoing to confirm provenance, age, and origin.
Bishop & Sons Depository UK tags still attached to various pieces. Over 25 pieces make up this incredible piece of history, and we can't wait for its true provenance to be revealed through testing and authentication processes. We have an entire Dropbox folder filled with hundreds of detailed photos of the bed. Feel free to reach out with any questions or inquiries.
