This beautiful antique bed is solid dark walnut, and is elaborately carved in the Eastlake style. The headboard is highly arched, with a carved acanthus leaf crest and center medallion. The matching foot board is simpler, with a center medallion and panels. The matching walnut side rails are gracefully curved up at the ends. There are 8 slats for the bed, which appear to be newer (and more solid because of that.) Extensions have been added so the bed will accommodate a full size mattress. Dimensions are: 54” wide x 63” tall headboard, 53 ¼” wide x 32” tall foot boards, and the side rails are 43 ½” long with the extensions x 10” tall at the ends. The finish of the bed is original, with some minor surface imperfections from age and use, but original finish is always desirable. This lovely bed would be great for any Victorian style bedroom!
