Here is a stunning quality antique 6ft wide Victorian colonial Anglo-Indian Raj four-poster bed, circa 1870, which will fit a standard UK super king size mattress (6ft wide x 6ft 6” long), in excellent original condition, boasting the original polish, originating from colonial India. The level of detail and craftmanship displayed in the materials, construction and carving of this bed is second to none. It is rare to find antique beds which will fit a modern 6ft super king mattress.
The bed incorporates a triple carved floral panel headboard, interspersed by ring turned spindles, below a moulded headboard top rail which arches over a central foliate pierced fretwork panel. The headboard also boasts a spectacular crown, which incorporates floral open fretwork carving, along with a crown flanked by rampant lion and unicorn. The bed incorporates moulded rails to the headboard and footboard, as well as moulded side rails and footboard rail. The footboard incorporates multiple ring-turned spindles below a horizontal moulded rail. Above the bed frame, four barley twist posts support a protruding moulded canopy. The bed terminates on substantial turned legs. This bed displays beautiful carvings throughout – even the bolt caps to the frame are carved into flower heads. The superstructure also lends itself to being dressed with romantic fabric drapes.
Retaining the original polish and patination, this colonial super king size bed boasts a rich red-brown colour, with a satin French polish finish. The bed is constructed of sissoo wood 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 good quality custom mattresses. This is a superior quality centrepiece for any bedroom and is ideal for those who prefer a wider bed.
