Here is a fine quality vintage English 18th century style oak four poster bed, which fits a standard UK king size mattress (5ft wide), circa 1980, with earlier elements, boasting exceptional quality and colour, in excellent original condition. The headboard to the oak four poster bed is constructed of nine inset panels within a reeded frame flanked by reeded vertical styles, secured in place by the traditional peg construction method. This panelled design is replicated in the design of the recesses panel roof and panel footboard. The bed has been fitted with good quality brass curtain poles in the past, which are attached to the inside of the canopy. They are attached to the side and footboard canopy sections. We can remove the brass rails if you do not require them. An elegant reeded-protruding mitred canopy unites the panel roof, supported by two sturdy earlier bulbous turned front posts, that stand on reeded moulded block feet, united by a panelled footboard; which is also constructed in the same traditional manner of a boarded peg construction. The side rails of the 18th century style four poster bed also benefit from elegant reeded moulded design. The oak four poster bed fits a standard UK king size mattress (5ft” wide x 6ft 6” long) on a wooden slat base. Please note, a divan base can be used instead of the slats if preferred – all you need to do is roll up the wooden slats and remove the central support bar.
The oak four poster bed dismantles into sections to allow for easy access up narrow staircases or through doorways. By removing the bolt cap covers from the siderails, allows the steel bolts to be accessed to be un-screwed to dismantle the four-poster bed. The headboard and roof dismantle into two sections and the front posts can be unscrewed from the footboard if necessary.
This 18th century style English four poster bed is accentuated with style, romance and tradition. The impression created by this bed will without doubt be a memorable one as they are genuinely unique and recreate the ultimate in luxury of a bygone age.
The oak four poster bed boasts a rich warm red and brown oak traditional colour, having been cleaned and wax-polished by hand in our workshop. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
This bed is not to be confused with other four-poster beds of lesser quality in the market place today. This bed is handmade from early English oak timbers (hence the rich warm colour). The design, build quality and superstructure (thickness of panels) are of superior and exceptional quality. It is an extremely heavy bed!
