Photograph from the collection of the New York Public Library. Auguste Pottier was 24 years old in 1847 when he left Paris to accept a position in America. He joined the cabinet making firm of E. Stymus formed Pottier & Stymus. During the 1860s important furniture firms like Herter Brothers and Charles A. Baudouine expanded into interior decorating–designing full suites for wealthy clients. Pottier & Stymus became a major player, producing costly, top quality pieces in historic revival styles–neo-Grec, Renaissance Revival, Egyptian Revival and Gothic, for instance. They were the first to apply gilt, bronze fittings (like paw feet), and to introduce furniture inlaid with ivory and mother-of-pearl. By the opening of the Centennial International Exhibition of 1876, Stymus & Pottier had established themselves as a leading force in the decorating industry. Their exhibition left no doubt as to the craftsmanship and quality of their furniture–not to mention its expense. The bedstead was of amaranth wood, inlaid with American carved walnut. The entire piece of furniture was made up of innumerable carvings representing arabesques, flowers and birds. The cost to make the bed would equal about a quarter of a million dollars today. It was acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art before the Centennial ended. This item is in the category “Antiques\Architectural & Garden\Chandeliers, Sconces & Lighting Fixtures”.
