Here is a superb quality antique English Charles II style solid oak super king size (6ft wide) four poster bed, circa 1920, incorporating earlier period timbers, showing exceptional workmanship and colour, in excellent condition. The bed has been constructed in the style of a bed from the mid to late 17th century (Charles II period).
The headboard is constructed of nine inset panels within a reeded frame. This panel design is replicated in the design of the recessed panel roof and panel footboard. An elegant reeded-protruding canopy surrounds the panel roof, supported by two bulbous turned front posts that stand on the block leg footboard. The footboard also features the same inset reeded panel design. The side rails feature an elegant reeded moulded design. This bed fits a standard UK super king size mattress (6ft” wide x 6ft 6” long) and boasts a stunning rich mid brown oak colour.
The bed comes with a handmade 4,000 sprung mattress (firm tension), manufactured by Parker, the master bed maker. The mattress incorporates a pillow top section above the mattress. The mattress has had very little use, having been used in a spare bedroom by the previous owners. We can supply the mattress with the bed free of charge. If you do not want the mattress, please let us know.
The bed dismantles into sections and panels for ease of transport, access into a house and assembly. Notably, the headboard and roof can be dismantled into two sections to allow easy access up narrow staircases or through doorways.
This 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 bed boasts a rich warm red and 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.
