George III Period Four-Poster Bed

About

A magnificent late 18th century four-poster bed. With finely executed and largely original paintwork. The uprights with reeded decoration. The whole in extraordinary good and original condition with the exception of the drapes. A Four-Poster Bed is with four vertical columns, one in each corner, that support a tester, or upper (usually rectangular) panel. There are a number of antique four-poster beds extant dating to the 16th century and earlier; many of these early beds are highly ornate and are made from oak. Some of the finest Four Poster were produced in the 18th Century. An example of such an early 16th-century four-poster resides in Crathes Castle, which was made for the original castle owners in the Burnett of Leys family.
