This is a beautifully designed queen size antique cast iron and brass bed. In addition to unusual floral designed castings, there are some wreath-like
castings linking the two sides of the trio of brass inserts. This iron bed, more decorative than some, has a classy look that would shine in
a myriad of decorating themes and house styles.
During the restoration process, this Victorian era metal bed had the old lead paint sandblasted off and replaced with a durable baked on lead free
paint in a gloss antique white finish.
Starting out as a 3/4 size bed (48 wide") which was a popular size made at the turn of the last century, this bed has been stretched out to 60" and
the side rails have been lengthened to accommodate a modern day queen size mattress.
This iron bed was handmade before the start of World War One. When the war started in 1914, production of cast iron beds dropped significantly
because iron was diverted for the war effort. After the war, metal beds were mass produced in aluminum, a much easier and lighter metal
to work with.
Side rails and cross supports included.
Bedding and accessories not included.
Headboard: 60.5"; Footboard: 40.5"; Width: 60"; Drop: 14"
