Here is an example of a good quality antique English Art Deco oak 4ft 6” wide bed, circa 1930, in good original condition. This bed fits a standard UK double size mattress (4ft 6” wide by 6ft 3” long). The headboard and footboard incorporate a single tier structure, with a stepped top rail design, featuring a central moulded panel with arched beading, finished with carved cartouches. The headboard and footboard are constructed from good quality pieces of oak veneer; the medullary rays in the timber are superbly pronounced. The headboard and footboard are connected (via bolts) to the original metal sprung camber-folding unit, which retain the original central pins. The bed also boasts the original hessian and cotton protector, which is used to place on the underside of the mattress and on top of the sprung unit, in order to protect the bottom of the mattress from the metal frame. The footboard mirrors the design of the headboard; it also incorporates stunning oak medullary rays, which are visible in the oak grain. The footboard terminates on a geometric stepped plinth on bracket feet, incorporating the original brass castors. The bed dismantles into three sections for easy transport and access into your house. This piece boasts classic art deco styling in the overall design of the curved corners, clean lines to top and the choice of materials.
This bed features a medium brown oak colour. 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 item would look superb in the bedroom. This item would certainly grace any home and is a great investment as it is extremely functional. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
