This bed will fit a mattress size up to 5ft 7” wide by 6ft 9” long. However, it will hold a standard UK king size mattress (which measures 5ft wide by 6ft 6” long), if the slats are lowered. The bed boasts a two-tier structure, which is superior in quality than that of a single tier design. The bed also boasts a single panel carved headboard depicting grapevines and flowers, flanked by ring turned spindles below an arched headboard. The carved open fretwork detail to the headboard and crown is spectacular; this is evident in the floral and grapevine carvings seen on the crown, and the rectangular panel, which sits below the crown. The crown also incorporates a pretty oval small mirror, flanked by beaded frame. Decorative blind fretwork detail is visible to the side rails and rails, along with the headboard and rails. To the bottom of the bed, the two-tier footboard incorporates multiple ring-turned spindles below a horizontal ring turned rail. Above the bed frame, four elegant barley twist tapered posts support a protruding moulded canopy. Decorative foliate motifs sit at the top and bottom of the posts. The bed terminates on ring turned baluster legs. The superstructure lends itself to being dressed with romantic fabric drapes. Retaining the original polish and patination, the bed boasts a rich dark rich red and brown colour, with a mid satin polish finish. The bed is constructed of sissoo wood (a member of the Rosewood family) and has a superior structure. This bed would look stunning in either a contemporary or traditional setting. It dismantles for easy transportation and we can provide affordable good quality custom mattresses. This is a superior quality centrepiece for any bedroom and ideal for those who prefer a wider bed. Provenance:The style of these beds dates from 1840 until 1947 (until Indian Independence). The beds were constructed for the British Raj, their families and the British Military in Colonial India. The beds were designed to collapse and be transported “flat pack” so could easily be moved whilst on military exercises and to their summerhouses in the hills. They were made when the Raj was at its height. The size, style and quality of the bed depict the status of the occupier or the military rank of the owner. They were made from the finest wood usually Mahogany, Teak or Sissoo wood (a member of the rose wood family). Teak and sissoo wood were used extensively in the construction of these colonial four-poster beds because they had the advantage of only minimally expanding and contracting when exposed to extremes in temperature and humidity. They were resistant to woodworm, termites, and the occasional splash of seawater.

This may be an option if you already own a king size mattress. The mattress shown on the bed in the pictures is a UK king size mattress. However, it is advised that a custom size mattress is supplied, as this will fit the bed frame more closely and maximise the mattress space. The actual dimensions of the custom mattress will depend on whether the slats are lowered or not. Condition Report:This bed is in good condition, which is commensurate with its age. Some nominal old use marks to the leading edges and polish but nothing significant considering the age of the item. This bed, which retains the original polish and patination, boasts a rich dark brown colour, with a light satin polish finish. It is extremely difficult to replicate this colour and patination with furniture that has been re-polished. Some minor foxing to the original glass mirror. The bed is constructed of sissoo wood (a member of the Rosewood family) and has a superior structure. The bed is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use. Price:The price for this item is £9,950 including free delivery to England, Wales & Southern Scotland*. Lowering the Slats:If you require the slats lowering into the bed frame, we charge £90 for the structural work. By lowering the slats the width of the mattress will be reduced by 1” in total. The slats are lowered by around 3” in height. The benefit of lowering the slats is that you get to see more of the headboard carvings even though you are using a modern 10” – 12” depth mattress. The original Victorian mattresses would have only been 2” – 3” deep. This bed will fit a standard UK king size mattress (which measures 5ft wide by 6ft 6” long), if the slats are lowered. This may be an option if you already own a king size mattress. The mattress shown on the bed in the pictures is a UK king size mattress. However, it is advised that a custom size mattress is supplied, as this will fit the bed frame more closely and maximise the mattress space. The actual dimensions of the custom mattress will depend on whether the slats are lowered or not. It is advised that 1” should be removed from the mattress width dimension if the slats are to be lowered. Between 1”- 3” (in total) should be removed from the above mattress length dimension to allow the mattress to comfortably fit on the bed between the headboard and footboard. Draping Service:We offer a separate draping service whereby we can dress the bed with any fabric of choice. This service can consist of the basic fabric being wrapped around the canopy, to hanging curtains or, providing a dressed solid roof with hung curtains. Apart from the superior style and presence, this four-poster bed had a practical purpose. The bed would have originally been decorated with a light muslin cotton material to prevent the mosquitos from biting the occupants in bed. The advertised price does not include drapes.
