Detail of antique field bed

Federal Field Bed B-55

sold to Karen Y. Massachusetts


Antique field bed in the classical style

A great New England field bed in the Federal style. The robust and boldly turned foot post with a ropeHeadboard detail of antique field bed twist carving is characteristic of the Sheraton style. The head posts are plain turned with no carving as they would have been concealed by the bed hangings. Although the bed would have had a tester frame similar to this one, this tester frame is not original. The bed is made of birch with a pine headboard. It has a lovely amber color but the finish is not original.
