More Cherubs….You’d Think It’s Valentine Season

I shared some of my painted cherub pieces in the post HERE, but have you ever seen anything like this?


It’s a beautiful late 18 c./early 19th c.antique French headboard or footboard to a crib bed.



It’s all painted metal with the original HANDPAINTED cherubs.


Each of the four corner cherubs are different.





The detail on the crest is amazing.


I’ve displayed it in my studio and the guest bedroom but I think it’s time to re-locate it to a more prominent place.
I’m thinking either the foyer, the music room, or the dining room.

I’m not sure where it will end up, but I wanted to share it with you since it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Don’t forget about the Blogger’s Brocanting Tour in France.

That is beautiful, Kim! I can only imagine what the whole crib must have looked like, in its day.

Ah, I thought it was a fireplace heat screen - put near the ladies when the roaring fire makes them too warm - they're about that size, too.

It's stunning no matter the original use.
