This beautiful mahogany bed was created in the mid to late 18th century during the Queen Anne/Chippendale period. It was originally constructed as a full but then later converted to a king size bed. The rails are original as well as the head board, however panels on the head board and extensions on the rails were added later to make this bed king size. The hand carved detailing feature cleft foot with foliage and scroll design that lead into a small panel also having a foliage detail. The design on the top and bottom border of the bed is similar to elongated egg and dart.
