George III Period Mahogany and Painted Four-Poster Bed

About

George III period mahogany and painted four-poster bed, formerly the property of the Lord Menuhin. The well carved uprights with reeded decoration with palmets and anthemion leaves, the bowed cornice with largely original paintwork incorporating scrolls, foliage and flowers. Please note this bed has a new custom-made mattress by Hypnos. 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 bed 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. RR.
