  1. Beautiful antique bed. With the canopy over it like that it reminds me of that Doris Day movie... can't think of the name of it.

  38. if all the bed will be as big as that, i wonder how the houses will look like there.

    but ive seen some old beds here in the philippines with a cover but not as big as this one. good that they preserved it.

  39. I presume historic rulers have used this precious relic from the past. Great that they preserved it :)
