This is a large imposing heavy pitch pine double bed. The bed is French and dates to the 1890s and is in the Art Nouveau / Arts and Crafts style of its day. It is a very impressive bed and quite dramatic with its sweeping detailing that continues on to the thick wooden side rails. The head and footboard have turned bobbin supports and turned finials and feet with candle shelves on the headboard and asymmetric recessed panels to the headboard also. The bed is made in thick heavy pitch pine which is a wood with wonderful striations to the grain.
This bed will wax and polish beautiful. The bed is in good condition.
No sign of damage or repair or worm. The side rails retain their original large French bolts and the bed is very solid when built. It splits easily too for moving. This is a rail bed and like all rail beds you will need to get slats to run across the side rails to support your mattress.
These slats are readily available from any builders merchant at little cost. You will need to screw the slats on to the top of the thick side rail to give yourself a base of 54 inches wide so that the bed will take a standard double mattress. It is rustic yet sophisticated and quite dramatic looking. The bed takes a standard double mattress 54 inches wide and up to 78 inches long. The head board is 61 inches high and the footboard is 45 inches high.My mobile is 078878 17751 Ask for Warwick or text me.
