About

The kitties are here, looking for a young lady to watch over each night. Decorated with walnuts, this amazing antique Victorian bed was made using some of the most beautiful woods available at the time, oak, walnut, and elm. During the last quarter of this century, an awesome, artistic grandmother, hand-painted adorable kitty-cats on the headboard of this bed for her granddaughter. Unusually wide for a bed of this era, it is extremely close to being a queen.

* The mattress can be no larger than 61.25" wide x 77.5" long.
