A Painted Country Low Post Bed, New England, 1st Half, 19th century

Scroll down for 6 more photos

We usually don't handle country beds of this form, but the untouched condition and additional scrollwork generally not found brought this example to our attention.  

Attached, please find a similar bed handled by the Israel Sack Company.   Note Sack's example does not have the side scrollwork, nor a footboard element...most of these beds do not.  The paint is first, and this bed is a prize for the connoisseur of untouched country furniture with unusual design work.

Height: 36 in. Width: 50 in. Length: 75 in.
Mattress Options: 47" x 72" or 43" x 68 1/2"
