Here's a bed and casting you're not likely to see very often. If you look closely you'll see the hair style on the female face has definite Victorian curls that were a popular fashion back in the 1800's. The casting "portait", was a little known company from Chicago who's owner put pictures, of his three daughters, in some way shape or fashion......on all the furniture his company produced. This was obviously one of those three daughters.
This is what we refer to as a "transitional" design. It falls in between Victorian, with it's "open ended" scrolling and Art Nouveau, with the beautiful flowing curves throughout the top of the head and footboard.
