Here is a superb quality late 20th Century reproduction of a Tudor style dark brown solid carved super king (5ft wide) full tester (four poster) bed, showing exceptional craftsmanship, in good condition. This is a superb quality bed finished in a dark brown oak colour, having been handmade from a combination of solid teak and oak. The bed is in the style of the English Tudor period, which dates from between 1500 to 1530. This bed shows exceptional craftsmanship. All panels are detachable for ease of transport, access into a house and assembly. This bed fits a standard UK king mattress (5ft” wide x 6ft 6” long).
The headboard can be dismantled into panels (if necessary) to allow easy access up narrow staircases or through doorways. The headboard is constructed of several floral carved panels, predominantly sunflowers and tulips; interspersed with guilloche, acanthus leaf and punch work sections. At the top are two large carved panels depicting flower heads on sunken matted ground, with three larger sunflower carved panels in the middle, and four smaller floral carved panels below.
The bed displays a stunning recessed panel roof, with a large central floral petal panel, flanked by further panels incorporating guilloche floral carvings, with corbels carved in the shape of angels. The roof also boasts a detailed carved canopy, which incorporates formal strap work arabesque rails defined by a sunken matted ground, interspersed by shaped corbels, with two further large carved corbels at the corners of the canopy.
The sections, including the small styles are interspersed by further formal strap work arabesque rails defined by a sunken matted ground. The external stiles incorporate delicate trailing grapevine carvings. Two floral carved fluted posts support the canopy at the front, above the bed.
The footboard boasts similar carved floral panels to the headboard, enriched with punch work flanked by formal strapwork arabesque vertical styles defined by a sunken matted ground. The two larger horizontal styles feature a moulded finish. The footboard corner blocks feature profuse grape vine floral carvings. The side rails features carved raised lozenge panels interspersed by formal strapwork arabesque rails defined by a sunken matted ground.
