This cast iron bed was handmade before the First World War ended the era of iron beds. The start of the war meant that all iron was diverted towards
the war effort. After the war, similarly styled beds were mass produced on assembly lines and were constructed from aluminum a metal that was much

In 1902, this double size iron bed was advertised in the Fall and Winter Catalogue of the S. Carsley & Co. in Montreal and a picture of the ad
is included with the detailed pictures of this full iron bed.
If you are using this iron double bed frame with an extra-long full double mattress, let us know and we will lengthen the rails to accommodate the fit.
These longer rails would also take a queen size mattress, but please be aware that your box spring would overhang the edges by 3” on either side.
Side rails and cross supports are included.
Bedding and accessories not included.
