A gorgeous, DS Vorster & Co, queen-size headboard in Sapele Mahogany with attached pedestals. This piece was manufactured by the renowned South African, DS Vorster during the 60's.
Stunning clean lines to fit in with any interiors. We have removed the previous handles and updated them with cool contemporary black mild steel powder-coated handles with just the right amount of detail. The headboard is divided into two pieces that when joined fit a queen size base and mattress. The wood has been fully restored, stripped, sealed and the piece is in superb vintage condition. Please measure your bed prior to purchasing.

As with mostly all Mid-Century pieces, it is a good combination of solid wood AND a high-quality wood veneer. The quality, old veneer was long-lasting and for this reason, it can be retouched or sanded and refinished. The history of veneer on furniture is a long and honorable tradition, and it depends on the workmanship, condition and thickness of the veneer itself

Although all effort is made to refurbish our furniture to best represent its original state, it must be noted that the majority of the items we source date between the 1950’s to the late 1970’s. For this reason and although restored, signs of their vintage condition & age might still be visible. We will normally point out any visible/notable concerns. Take note of all photos or view the item in-store prior to purchasing.
