This is a circa 1880 cast iron bed frame in the French Neoclassical style

with putto, wheat, grapes, and flourishes in a verdigris finish.

(Putti or Putto are cherubs without wings)

The value of this bed is $400 to $500 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling on your own are https://marketplace.apartmenttherapy.com/, www.loveseat.com (in CA),
Vinterior.com (in Europe), Pamono.com, Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local),
Chairish.com, Ioffer.com, and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
They do all of the work and you get a check 14 to 45 days after the sale minus their 15% to 25% (negotiable!) commission.
