Description:
This is a fine quality antique English Victorian Ars & Crafts carved solid oak pair of single beds, circa 1890, in excellent condition. This bed fits a standard UK single size mattress (3ft” wide x 6ft 3” long) and the mattress can be either situated on the wooden slats, or on a sprung box base if preferred – the beds are supplied with wooden slats only. The design of the bed takes is influenced from the Arts & Crafts period, with a floral carved sectional top rail, floral carved twin inset head panels below, flanked by elegant twist posts terminating on block legs. The design is repeated on the footboards. The pair of single beds retains its original “Vono” cast angle iron brackets, which are used to support the steel angle irons. The angle irons are united with four bolts, to secure the bed frame.

They dismantle for easy transportation. The wooden slats separate into two sections and we can supply good quality new mattresses if required.

The pair of single beds retains the original polish, which is why the beds boast a rich oak patination & colour. It is impossible to re-create this colour if the bed had been stripped and re-polished. The pair of Arts & Crafts beds would look stunning in either a contemporary or traditional setting.

The Arts & Crafts Movement:
The Arts and Crafts movement was an international trend in the decorative and fine arts that developed earliest and most fully in the British Isles and subsequently spread across the British Empire and to the rest of Europe and America. Initiated in reaction against the perceived impoverishment of the decorative arts and the conditions in which they were produced, the movement flourished in Europe and North America between about 1880 and 1920. It is the root of the Modern Style, the British expression of what later came to be called the Art Nouveau movement, which it strongly influenced.

We will also provide you with our shippers’ contact details, in case you need to contact the driver on the day of delivery. It’s helpful if you can provide us with both the landline and mobile telephone number, in case the driver cannot reach you on one of the numbers on the day of delivery, they can contact you on your alternative number.
