Dog Beds of Yester-year...an antique with a posh past
Travel back in time with Brindles to the 18th century as we peek inside the window of a local Upper East Side antique shop, R. Louis Bofferding. Long reknown for their collection of decorative and fine art, we were shocked to see that the Bofferding window has literally gone to the dogs - - a Louis XVI Dog Bed, that is!
Imagine the pup that stretched out for a nap on this piece of fine French furniture! We had to learn more...
This original wood-and-cord frame with mattress upholstered in shantung silk once belonged to the beloved Fifi, a descendant of Marie Antoinette's lap dog named CoCo. Fifi resided with a prominent Fifth Avenue family, frolicking in Central Park with her Hermes collar and lady's maid. From her exquisite daybed Fifi reigned supreme in an alcove with a pair of tiny Italian chandeliers, and a miniature French table on which her personal chef left bone-shaped marzipan treats at night.
What a piece of fine French furniture, indeed! If your pup seeks an abode with a past as posh as its present, this antique commands a cool $9,000.
