Victorian Half Tester Bed for sale.
Circa 1850, in burr walnut.
It comes with an upholstered headboard complete with drapes and back curtain.
The headboard, footboard and top of tester are covered in matching silk material.
The drapes are on each side of the bed and are a toile de jouy fabric. They are fully lined.
The overall length of the bed is 90 inches, overall height 89 inches, and overall width 68 inches.
The bed comes complete with a linked two piece bespoke Savoir Beds No 2 divan base. It does NOT come with a mattress. The bed will take a 5ft x 6ft 6ins mattress or slightly larger if you have a bespoke one made!
Savoir Beds are about the best bed manufacturer going with prices to match. If you look at www.savoirbeds.co.uk
you will see that the cost of a base alone is ££ several thousand.... There are however many alternative suppliers.
The bed is in overall excellent condition, but being around 150/160 years old does have the occasional superficial scar but nothing to detract from its looks or functionality. With a mattress it is ready to use.
It would look good in many settings and is a real talking point. It could be equally used in a home as a real statement piece, alternatively for a hotel or high end bed and breakfast suite.
The uprights are not walnut, they are a similar wood which have been polished to match. Originally they too would be covered in fabric.
Collection is from HP9, J2 of the M40. Assistance can be given to load.
