Do any of your darlings need a good night's sleep? Perhaps you have an early fashion lady who has been shopping for a bed for her daughter? Look no further. This exquisite, early, true Victorian cast iron doll bed with wonderful scroll work and original bedding will absolutely enchant any and all who visit the nursery. Imagine Mamma reading the little one a book to lull her eyelids closed, her wooden arms holding a story book, as Pappa looks on from the door way before blowing out the candle and escorting Mamma back to the parlor for a night cap, as their daughter is lulled to sleep by the soft warmth of a comforting lawn lined woolen canopy. It is moments like these that make doll collecting magical; the ability to construct a narrative, and build the spaces that we imagine in our heads with articles from the past. This exquisite bed is a rare article from the 1880's. Included with this bed, there are three layers of bedding, including a down matress on the bottom, a more substantial cotton filled mattress, and topped with a beautiful red pinstriped mattress, and matching pillow. A white cotton lace trimmed pillow adds extra comfort. And that exquisite bright red wool canopy that is so hard to find with these old beautiful beds; lined with delicate lawn and trimmed with super sweet cotton lace. What an exciting find!
Length: 15.25" Width: 7" Height (of canopy): 17.5"
Condition: Generally excellent! All of the bedding is present and the presentation is superb. It is very hard to find the original canopy like this, especially hand stitched, but please note that there are some mothholes (visible in photos.) Additionally, the canopy rod is a later replacement. Still, this is a museum worthy find that will absolutely delight your dollies!
