Bay Colony Antiques is proud to offer for sale this fantastic antique style Tiger Maple Pencil Post Bed. The bed was made by Leonard’s of New England who continue to produce some of the finest Early American reproduction beds and beds that were converted to queen & king size from antique bed elements. We love the delicate proportions of the bed because the thin posts won’t overwhelm most rooms and block out too much light. Each post has a square bottom that transitions into the tapered pencil posts with a lamb's tongue carving. Each post is topped with adorable turned acorn finials and the bolts are covered with decorative brass bolt covers. The craftsmen at Leonard’s selected high-quality Curly Maple for the bed with exceptionally fine figuring on the headboard & footboard rail. This exact bed can still be custom ordered for just under $6000.

This was a guest bed for the previous owners and was pretty sparingly used so the finish is in very good condition, pretty much mint. The footboard post on the viewers right side has developed a slight crook towards the top. It’s more noticeable in the pictures than in person and might seem like a big issue at first glance, but in reality, it's just a small quirk that doesn't affect the functionality of the bed. It's something one could easily live with, especially considering the bed is priced at over 50 percent off. This minor imperfection allows the bed to be offered at a significant discount, making it a practical choice for budget-conscious buyers who don't mind a slight aesthetic anomaly. A lace canopy or another draped fabric would further conceal it.

This is a Queen size bed & measures 63” wide x 85 1/4” deep x 84” tall. The interior dimensions are 60” wide x 80 1/4” deep. The box spring supports are 12 1/4” off the ground and the height at the top of the headboard is 47”.
