reproduction of antique cannonball bed

This is a copy of one of our antique cannonball beds. The attractive design uses Federal motifs with the later Empire style. Compare the headboard to the top of this spice chest and the post to an earlier Philadelphia bed. The original maker is clearly "updating" earlier forms. A nice touch is the lambs tongue leading into the square section of the post. This reduces the mass of the square contributing to the feel of an earlier style. Shown here in queen size in black paint.

Available in any size in maple with stained or painted finish and in tiger maple, cherry or mahogany in a natural or stained finish.

Each bed is based on an antique bed design and individually built to your specifications in our shop with your choice of headboard, rails, mattress support and finials where appropriate.

Base Price $4,458, see Price List for options
