Whytock and Reid solid Mahogany large king size bed
Whytock and Reid solid Mahogany large kingsize bed. Superb heavy quality with fielded panels and cock beading. It even has cock beading on the back of the head board. Made by renowned Edinburgh cabinet makers. Totally original with lovely colour and patina. Whytock and Reid were awarded the Royal warrant by Queen Victoria in 1838 and proudly displayed the Queen's coat of arms on a painted oak plaque over the front doors of their Edinburgh head quarters until their closure in 2004, just short of their 200th anniversary.
Noted for their craftsmanship and use of the finest materials, the company was established in 1807 by Richard Whytock and John Reid. The firm enjoyed a successful run during the 19th and early 20th centuries furnishing the grand houses and castles of Scotland often in partnership with Robert Lorimer.
Whytock and Reid would take commissions of varying scales from clients, from the creation of a single item of furniture to the design of an entire home including the furniture, textiles and china. Their clients included family homes, country houses, businesses such as The Royal Bank of Scotland and even the Royal Family. One of their most notable appointments was to refurnish the Royal Yacht Britannia when it came to Leith.
