Mae's bed

May West: When I'm good I'm very good, 
but when I'm bad I'm better.

An article written in 1930 mentioned the preferences of Mae West on home decor: "She likes everything massive," noted the journalist. "Her furniture, bed, even her car is larger than the average. The swan bed used onstage in Diamond Lil was taken from her home..."  
Formerly it had belonged to the turn-of-the-century actress Amelia Bingham (L), and afterwards to Diamond Jim Brady (R).
