Paul McCobb Maple King Headboard - Rare - Bedroom - Bedroom
This amazing headboard came from a home that also had a Planner Group three-drawer dresser (listed for sale separately). The headboard is topped with a painted steel bookshelf that provides a great architectural look. It is in overall good vintage condition with a beautiful warm patina. Wright auctions listed this wood as mahogany. To me, it looks similar to the maple that is used on the Planner Group dressers, but the finish may be a tiny bit darker and slightly more reddish.
There are some minor losses of the patina on one of the shelves and a couple small spots of discoloration. These are not very distracting in person and likely could be addressed with some buffing and polishing. There is a small indent on the edge of the shelf that has the patina loss. I cannot tell if it was caused by a ding or by an imperfection in the wood. Please review the photos to see these minor issues.
