The Sleigh Bed

The Sleigh Bed is visiting my home until it can find a new home. Height: 35", length: 80" at bottom, 86" at top, Width: 35", Clearance: 8". Currently has a slip cover on it, but the original upholstery is beautiful, too.

This label is underneath it:

Here's a foot:

Some detail along end:

Some detail along the top edge:

Pretty neat, huh? Let me know what you think. Is it an antique? How old is it? Mrs. Mendel, of the Strassel & Company business (closed late 1970s) travelled abroad - did she bring this back from somewhere? Or was it crafted in Louisville - as the label might suggest?
