Mahogany West Indies Bed

Offered By David Skinner Antiques

Because of the rarity of Caribbean antiques, especially four-poster beds, restoration is warranted if done in a manner sympathetic to what would have been the original form. This bed, probably 1810-30, based on its headposts has been given queen cedar rails and a reproduction headboard hand carved in a manner appropriate to the period. Winding reeded posts are often considered quintessentially West Indies, and are beautifully represented in this piece.
