Dated 1815, this utterly spectacular mangle board is unique and exceptional in its original paint. Decorations are the king and queen with handsome crowns, framed on the bottom with a pair of graceful facing swans. The classic flower basket is beautifully carved with lively flowers.
The front corners were repaired at some point. The tail must once have been made with horse hair, just a tiny bit remains, worn off with time.
An old customer found this on the internet. I think it is the same king!
Made of beech wood. Excellent condition.
