Here is a fine quality vintage English 18th century style super king four poster bed, constructed of solid oak, which fits a standard UK super king mattress (6ft 6” wide by 6ft long), circa 1990, displaying a lovely golden oak colour, in excellent original condition. The headboard to the oak super king four poster bed, is constructed of three inset panels within a moulded frame, flanked by vertical styles, secured in place by the traditional mortice & tenon joints. The side rails are constructed with similar inset oak moulded panels. An elegant reeded-protruding mitered canopy unites the panel roof, supported by four sturdy turned posts, that stand on block stile feet. We can upholster the underside of the roof with pleated fabric, incorporating a central sunburst – please contact us for a quote. Conversely, the bed can be used without the roof, if preferred (please see the photos). The oak super king four poster bed, fits a standard UK super king mattress (6ft 6” wide x 6ft long) on a wooden slat base. The bed has been designed so that the longest side of the mattress is the width (as opposed to the length), to allow for more space in the bed for two persons.
The oak super king 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.
