Walnut Daybed


A carved walnut daybed circa 1840 having a tufted leather covering with unusual carved lion
supports holding the back on a molded and shaped frame on cabriole legs on casters.
“Scottish baronial” is the term most frequently applied to furniture having carved unicorns
and lions, both of which come from the British coat of arms, and the term directly relates to
the romanticism of the uniting of Scotland, Ireland and England under James VI of Scotland
who became James I of Great Britain in 1603.
