Extremely rare super king size early Winfield all brass bedstead c 1860, with taper tube posts and elaborate cast panels depicting nesting birds, foliage and flowers. All the fine cast detail is further enhanced by a process known as chasing. This was literally done by hand using tiny chisels to create the detailed markings.
