This is a super nice bed in wonderful original condition, dates back to Civil War period...1860's..There are few spots here and there, primarily on edges of rails.. So as to not be confused, please note that this bed is made of WALNUT, but has original FAUX ROSEWOOD finish .The fabric of course is not original, I also have the sheer curtains that were installed at back on each end if you would like to have them, rods are present to hang them on. This bed has been cut down, refer to next to last photo, (I can further clarify if need be.), it would originally been about 9 ft tall.
This bed is considered to be a family size bed, as you see in the photo it is shown with a full size box spring, which will be included if you want it., the previous owner put in the full size mattress, then cut a piece of wood and topped it with foam, so that a QUEEN MATTRESS could then be used, (because of piece of wood that protrudes on inside of rails queen mattress will not fit inside) It is a little snug but queen mattress will fit, and looks fine. I do have a picture of the bed showing it made up with spread, but couldn't post on listing because resolution was too small, can send if you would like to see it.. This bed comes apart in several pieces. If you decide you want to have the bed shipped here are the measurements of the individual pieces: Canopy: 44" x 64" x 4' thick, 2 posts 7ft long, 2 posts 3 ft long. Headboard measures 53" w. x 50" h. Two side rails 77" l. x 17" h., Two end rails 56" l. x 17" h., Two Support Brackets 32" x 4" x 1" thick, Box Springs is optional, it measures 52" w x 74" l. x 7" h.. Included are 6 -5-1/2" wood slats. To give you a point of reference let me tell you that the inside measurements where box springs and mattress goes is 58" w. x 78" l, Outside measurements are 62" w. x 86-1/2" h. x 82" L.
