Antique pineapple bed detail of headboard

This American Classical or Empire style bed has extensively carved posts with a pineapple at the top. The square butter mold carving below the pineapple adds to its charm. The panelled headboard is topped with a turned roll. The entire piece is of birch stained a pleasing reddish color. The bed was originally a double end bed but an old repair plugged the footboard mortises.
