This is a nice painted and gilded Venetian Italian Antique bed and bedsides, circa 1930. The bed has a wing head and footboard and pretty shell carvings. The paint and gilt on the set is original and the gilt does in fact appear to be a mixture of gold and silver. Both the paint and gilt have worn over time and has the nice aged feel. On both the bed and bedsides there are some small black marks, possibly burn marks, that have happened at some point. You may be able to see them in the photos but they are not major and don't take anything away from what is a lovely bed and matching bedside tables.
