Description

A magnificent all brass four poster bed with tall posts, decorative brass fittings and central brass plaques depicting cherubs amongst vines and foliage. The etched posts and decorative brass fittings on the posts and at the “kneecaps” and feet are of the finest quality. The canopy has a decorative fretwork around the edges and a delicate ornate crown supported by a brass tentacle canopy. There is a date stamp on one of the castings of 10 October 1870.
The bed was originally manufactured in the Birmingham area of the UK and then shipped to North Africa, from where we have retrieved it. It is one of the finest examples of mid-Victorian decorative beds we have ever had in our showroom.
The bed accepts a 72 inch wide British Super King or Californian King-Size base and mattress set.
The bed will need a shallow base (or box spring) to support the mattress. We will add further angle iron supports in the centre of the base to support the base.
Both the base and mattress are extra and can be provided by Seventh Heaven.
This bed does require a high ceilinged room of at least 10 foot high (120 inches) to display the crown, which sits at a height of 119 inches. It is of course possible to assemble the bed without the tentacle canopy and crown. The height to the top of the brass knob on the posts is 93 inches.
