ANTIQUE FRENCH UPHOLSTERED BEDSTEAD BED FRAME
This is an opportunity to bid on this Upholstered bedstead, bed frame. I would guess that it dates to around the mid twentieth century, and I think was made in France.
What you get is exactly what you see in the pictures, it all bolts together nicely, but some way of fixing slats needs to be devised.
It is in un-restored condition, straight from a House Clearance type Auction, so there will be some blemishes here and there. The woodwork, which still retains it's original paint-work. would benefit from a Going-Over with some Good Quality Coloured Wax Polish such as Fiddes English Oak.
The upholstery is in good order although the Salmon Pink velvet-like fabric has become slightly out of favour with the latest interior design schools of thought, and it might be a good candidate for recovering.
It measures:- 59" (150cm) wide from the inside of the side rails, 62" (158cm) from the outside to the outside, and is 77" (196cm) long from the inside of the foot to the inside of the headboard. The foot is 29" (74cm) high and the headboard is 46" (117cm)
This is an antique second-hand piece of furniture and will obviously have signs of wear, so have a good look at the photos, but don't be put off! Come and join the minority that appreciate the individuality and character of Antique Furniture.
If you find yourself in the East Somerset area, you would be more than welcome to come and view this bed before bidding.
I can be found at Unit 7, Curtis Industrial Units, Manor Furlong, Frome, BA11 4RN.
It is in storage there, so give me a ring on 07889 101314 to fix a time.
It is too heavy, and awkward to post. In an ideal world it would be collected from me in Frome. Otherwise I can deliver locally up to 100 miles for 60p per mile from BA11 1DS, with a minimum charge of £20.
For longer distances there is a company called Silversprint who will deliver anywhere within Mainland England or Wales for £55+vat. You will need to let them know it is picking up from Tim Snell Antiques, the best way to arrange this is to contact silversprint.co.uk and fill out their order form. Please note that if you decide to use a courier once this item of furniture has left my premises it is the couriers total responsibility there after.
