New England tall post field bed circa 1810-1820. Tall, simple, elegant posts reflect on the finest of design in this period. Made of hard maple with a pine headboard, the turnings remain crisp even after centuries. The old finish gives warm color to the surface. Especially important is the wood used in the foot posts, curly maple! At the foot rail, you will notice the wood knobs which held the roping formerly keeping the original mattress in place. Now held together with study steel bolts. Currently modified in length and width. Shown holding a standard full size 52 to 53 inch wide (bedding and mattress not included).

H. 64″, w. 60″, l. 81″.

An dramatic piece for the bedroom, $900
