Prime Provenance: The King Farouk Bedroom Suite

Posted: October 27, 2010 14:03 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

Few things excite me more than discovering rare treasures that are distinguished by an incredible provenance. It's the provenance that turns a great piece into a phenomenal piece, and literally brings the events normally only read in history books to life. In the case of this amazing seven-piece Empire Bedroom Suite, made by Parisian ébéniste Antoine Krieger and owned by Egypt's last ruling king, Farouk I...can it get any better? The rule of the king can be described as tumultuous at best, but there is no denying Farouk's insatiable appetite for the best money could buy. Although he al...
