This is one of my very favourite purchases of recent times and what a treasure. This fabulous early 4 poster bed was made for a baby house in 1819 (please see my pictures the details of the cabinet maker etc are hand written on the back of the headboard, I cant make out all the words so cant say who it was made for but the details are there, I will leave the mystery to be solved by the next owner) suffice to say that this was made for a baby house. It is well constructed with lovely turned wood posts, a domed top and all original 18thC printed cotton drapes. The early material is just fabulous , much earlier than the bed. It has 2 mattresses, one I would say original to the bed the other and the rest of the bedding maybe be a bit later, they are cleaner. all bedding is antique. This bed is the perfect size for a larger dolls house or an early baby house. I have shown in the pictures a 7.5 inch doll standing next to it for scale. Measurements are 10.5 inches tall to the top of the dome, 10 inches long and 8 inches wide.
