The level of detail and craftmanship displayed in the materials, construction and carving of this bed is second to none. It is rare to find antique beds which will fit a modern 6ft super king mattress.

The bed incorporates a triple carved floral panel headboard, interspersed by ring turned spindles, below a moulded headboard top rail which arches over a central foliate pierced fretwork panel. The headboard also boasts a spectacular crown, which incorporates floral open fretwork carving, along with a crown flanked by rampant lion and unicorn. The bed incorporates moulded rails to the headboard and footboard, as well as moulded side rails and footboard rail. The footboard incorporates multiple ring-turned spindles below a horizontal moulded rail. Above the bed frame, four barley twist posts support a protruding moulded canopy. The bed terminates on substantial turned legs. This bed displays beautiful carvings throughout – even the bolt caps to the frame are carved into flower heads. The superstructure also lends itself to being dressed with romantic fabric drapes.

Condition Report:
This 6ft wide Victorian colonial Anglo-Indian Raj four-poster bed is in excellent original condition, which is commensurate with its age. Some nominal old use marks to the leading edges and polish but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The headboard and footboard bed joints have been cleaned and glued to ensure the bed frame is solid in joint. The bed has been French polished by hand in our workshop to a professional standard, therefore the colour and patination of the timber is of an excellent standard. The carvings are all intact, with no missing pieces or damage beyond the usual signs of age and use. The bed assembles together and all bolts and screws are in good condition. The bed is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use. It is rare to find antique beds which will fit a modern 6ft super king mattress.
