Antique Chinese Wedding Bed

Hello,  I bought this antique Chinese wedding bed a long time ago(along with some huge carved jade boats) from the estate of a collector that passed away. It was in pieces and I did not even know what it was at first. It has not been together for decades. I just assembled it and it’s all there! There is an amazing amount of detailed artwork. I only lightly cleaned it without chemicals because I did not want to damage anything.  I do not have any knowledge in Chinese antiques. I am looking for an expert that can tell me what I have, what it may be worth, and what it would probably sell for in todays market. Attached are a couple of photos and a link below for 50+ more.  Link to 50+ pictures: Thank you, Joe Spitalnik 250-686-7309

Hello Joe, Thank you for contacting Mearto. This is a carved and decorated Chinese wedding bed, probably made in the Qing dynasty. I am including some hammer prices below of similar pieces. You can see that they range. Most were between US $1000 and $2000. Sometimes this is based on the intricacy of the work. I am putting that price as my estimate, but bear in mind that you may be able to go higher. Hammer prices: $750 $1600 $1600 $1800
