I was photographing two beds for the catalog yesterday and noticed that both had prominent Fleur-de-Lis motifs on them. Could they possibly have been made by the same manufacturer? And then I spied it! Each bed also had two identical flower castings amidst all the Fleur-de-Lis. Conclusion? They came from the same foundry, but which one? Many cast iron beds were made in Quebec. I wonder if these two started life there?
The one on the left is called the Lion's Head bed and on the right is the Fleur-de-Lis Inspired bed. They are found in the Double Bed catalog on pages 1 and 2 respectively.
