Description:
Here is a good quality antique 6ft wide Art Deco colonial Raj four-poster bed, circa 1920, finished in a black ebony colour, which fits a standard UK super king size mattress (6ft wide x 6ft 6” long), in excellent original condition. The bed boasts a single tier structure with a central carved floral urn (a sign of good quality), flanked by fan shaped open spindles to the arched head and footboard with arched corner posts. Alongside the outer perimeter frame of the bed, the headboard, footboard, feature moulded side rails. The bed boasts carved elegant acanthus leaf carved legs, which terminate on pad feet. Above the bed frame, two central open fretwork sections support a drop-down canopy. The superstructure lends itself to be dressed with romantic muslin drapes. Please note, the bed can be used without the raised supports and canopy (i.e. not as a four-poster bed). This bed will fit a standard UK super king size mattress (6ft wide by 6ft 6” long).

The bed was designed to be freestanding in the centre of a room; this is why the back of the headboard is also carved and features a mirror match design so that the bed can stand in either direction.
