Early Low Post Rope Bed, B-66

sold to Heide H. of Sharon, CT


Anitque low post bed.

Detail of antique low post bed post.This attractive low post bed in red ochre is a classic early American form. The posts have nice crisp detailed turning, the rails are chamfered on the inside and interlock at the joints and it has never been outfitted for bed bolts. The finish is an original red ochre washcoat of paint. The headboard has been repaired at some point and is old but is not original to the bed.

This bed can be outfitted for bed bolts. We would use our hand forged screw cap head bolts. With bed bolts this bed can be fitted for our European slats instead of rope.
