The bed will fit a custom size mattress up to 5ft 10” wide by 6ft 9” long if the slats are left at the original height. If you choose to lower the slats (in order to see more detail in the headboard), a standard UK king sizes mattress (5ft wide x 6ft 6” long) would fit this bed, although there would be a small gap of 3” between the mattress and inside of the side rail. either side of the mattress. However, this gap could be filled with bedding and space to tuck duvet covers in.

The superstructure lends itself to being dressed with romantic fabric drapes. The four central barley twist posts hold the drop-down canopy in place, which in turn, are held in place by large threaded screws into the head and footboard. In between the turned posts on both the head and footboard is a panel which sports wavy open fretwork carving. The two-tier foot and headboard are mirrored in design featuring a carved central urn surrounded by floral carvings, flanked by turned spindles and oval shaped fretwork panels either side. Below the main panels is a second tier consisting of turned spindles. The head and footboard corners are supported by four sturdy turned columns, which sit above four cabriole legs resting on claw and ball feet. The bed retains the original stunning colour and patination, having been sympathetically cleaned in our workshop by hand.

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 cleaned and 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.
