Luxury Design, Past & Present
A magnificent all brass four-poster bed bedstead with four detailed etched brass posts, displaying bulbous brass fittings, supporting an impressive spider canopy, surmounted by a substantial crown. The two panels are decorated with ornate cast brass fittings, with the lower panel having additional scroll decoration. Circa 1880.
This bed has absolute measurements of:
Width - 63 inches (160 cm).
Length - 89 inches (226 cm).
Height to top of knob on post - 89 inches (226 cm).
Height to top of canopy including crown - 122 inches (310 cm).
The mattress to fit the bed will be a standard British king-size (as shown in the photographs), 5ft. wide x 6ft. 6in. long (150cm x 200cm).
The height of the top of the mattress in the photograph is 32 inches (81 cm), although this can be altered by having different depth of base.
The bed is shown dressed, but the price is for the bedstead frame alone. The base, mattress, bedding and linen are additional and all available from Seventh Heaven.
