FINELY CARVED CHERRY 18TH CENTURY CONNECTICUT RIVER VALLEY TESTER BED
Bay Colony Antiques takes the highest praise & compliments to offer you this fabulous 18th century tall four poster carved cherry canopy bed from the Connecticut River Valley. It has been converted from a rope foundation bed in the rails to serve as a full sized bed but requires custom sized bedding. This is a fantastic bed with exceptionally well carved tall posts each having reed, cross hatched and rope carvings. The posts are 78 1/2" tall. It is 83" long and 54 1/2" wide. Its between the rails measurements are 76 1/2" X 52 1/2". We acquired it with only a standard full sized mattress stuffed into the rails and it worked very well is its only and 1 1/2" off the width of standard full sized bedding. But we have to note its correct sizing. A perfect candidate to convert to queen or king size with the bed by our woodworker the famed Steve Rice of Western Massachusetts. This bed can be broken down into single components for ease of shipping & moving. Once our antique beds are converted to larger sizes its value goes up three fold but the work can be be done for a 1/3rd of that price.
