Original period bed frame, colonial era, from the late 1700s or early 1800s, known as a rope bed, made before box springs. Rope would be woven into a net around the pegs on the head, foot, and side rails, to support a traditional stuffed mattress.
Can be used with modern style 3/4 size mattress & box spring by installing L-brackets to the side rails, very easy. We can do this for you if required.
Standard 3/4 size, complete with original rails and bed bolts. The bolts appear to be hand-forged with giant heads, for a superb colonial authentic look.
The tops of the posts are flat because it was made for a tester or a canopy, which is very rare in these beds. That's optional and does not come with the bed.
This could be furnished for you fairly easily for an additional cost- inquire.

The red painted finish appears to be the original surface, in beautiful condition.
Disassembles for safe, cheap shipping and easy transport & installation.

Tools needed: large screwdriver.
