This is a very very nice antique king size walnut bed weve just bought from a local home.
The bed has variouse wear and tear due to age and use.
The only bits that really notice are a bit of damage to the top of the carving on the footboard(see pic) and a bit of wear to the polish on the headboard(see pic).
It also only has 4 planks that the mattress lays on.
When we took the bed it was set up and had the mattress on,and was set up as you see it with only the 4 planks on.
I would have thought that the mattress would have sunk through the gaps.
Still I would advise getting some more planks from somewhere like B+Q to make it firmer.
Basicly it comes in 4 pieces and screws together very easily.
The headboard is approx. 62ins high and the footboard is approx. 45ins high.
It takes a king size matress(not included).
The bed was originally bought from an antique shop in Long Mellford for £1900.00.
This is a nice original antique kingsize bed in the Louis style that would look great in the right home.
