Stunning and Rare Black Early Victorian King Size Bed

This stunning Early Victorian bed has beautifully attractive features everywhere you look. From its distinct and intricate iron work, which mounts and surrounds the original hand painted ornamental plaque, to the flowing lines of the ironwork held by floral decorative castings, which mirror the original hand painted flowers within the plaque. This delightful bed also has tapered posts leading to a particularly attractive original brass cap and finial, the simplicity of the brass elements harmonise with the bed beautifully. This truly is a unique and special bed – please do see all the photos. This bed has been professionally restored to be sturdy and practical, but also beautiful. The frame has been shot blasted, primed and hand painted in Little Greene’s Jack Black, waxed to give a soft sheen and to preserve. We have extended the side rails to fit a modern king size mattress 5’ x 6’6” / 150cm x 200cm. and to support slats or a bed base. Price includes wood slats (Sorry not mattress). As an alternative to the wood slats we can supply a 2” or 4” deep upholstered bed base – Bed photographed on slats. We can also supply hand-made mattresses in all comfort choices. Please ask for details and prices or look at base and mattress section of our own web site. Bedsteads have been sourcing, restoring and retailing antique beds and bedroom furniture for over 30 years.
