Characterful Antique/Vintage Duck Egg Blue Hand Painted French Cot Bed / Child's Bed

Gorgeous Duck Egg Blue Hand Painted Antique / Vintage French Cot / Child's Bed

This French cot has been hand painted in Annie Sloan's Duck Egg Blue, sealed with clear wax. We have used our artisan ageing technique to aged distressing it - adding character and charm to the piece. The removable side panels have been left unpainted - creating a beautiful contrast to the painted base. 

As with so many old French items, this antique / vintage cot / child's bed standing on functioning original caster wheels is just adorable. As mentioned below the side panels and also the wooden mattress base frame are removable. Although it started its life as a cot / child's bed, it is antique/vintage and not up to the standards of today's baby beds. We are selling it as an ornamental item, and not as an actual baby's cot / child's bed. 

It is in a good antique/vintage condition. As with most antique/vintage furniture, there are marks and dents from its long life that, in our opinion, only adds to the character and charm of the piece. There are marks from removed hinges on the headboard's top - maybe there was a canopy attached at some point - we do not know. On three of the corners of the interior there are bent nails - see photo. They are not sharp, but we want you to know that they are there.  Please see photos. 

This French cot / child's bed is ideal for a display of cushions, teddy bears, dolls etc. It is in a sturdy condition. We want to make clear that we are selling it as an ornamental item, as it does not meet today's health and safety standards.
