Click to enlarge
A stunning southern four-poster bed in very fine mahogany with carved tobacco & acanthus leaf embellishments on posts, and offering original tester. Probably from Virginia, circa 1810. While the bed was originally wide enough, the side rails were lengthened to accommodate a California King mattress. A custom box spring which sits down into the original iron L brackets allows the California King mattress to rest on the side rails. A California King mattress is 72" wide x 84" long. Custom box spring is included: 65" wide x 84" long x 7" high. Overall bed dimensions: 72" wide x 93.75" long x 109.5" high (96" high without tester). CONDITION: Excellent. Side rails were re-fabricated by copying the originals. The original side rails are available to accompany the bed if requested. These are the only alterations that were made to accommodate a California king mattress. WEAR: Wear consistent with age and use.
