RARE c. 1870 REPLICA OF A 17thc. BED~

DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME, ONE-OF-A-KIND ANTIQUE~

17thc. STYLE 'PILGRIM FURNITURE' BED.

It's so extremely hard to find such a beautiful and rare period style bed, and with 17th century beds now almost impossible to find, and commanding huge prices, Country Lady Antiques is very pleased to be able to offer this 19thc. antique replica of an English 17thc. tester bed, and at a wonderful and affordable price.

A period syle tester/four poster bed is an item of furnishing that would always be the focal point of your collection and room, and grow in value.

Carved and beautifully paneled headboard. Paneled footboard and tester (canopy) as well. Turned posts. Newer side rails for the mattress and for sturdiness.

Headboard features desirable 'candle shelf'. The simple carving is not like the overly ornate 'castle beds', and this bed would be the showpiece in anyone's home who loves the early style.

Picture this in your bedchamber or in a corner of your 'hall' chamber~

MEASUREMENTS~

OVERALL:

Length: 73 inches

Width: 57 inches

Height: 79 inches

You have several easy options at to mattresses for the bed. We had a mattress and boxspring made for our own antique bed, and can help the buyer of this bed if you need advice.

In our case we added L brackets, dropping the boxspring down, so that the top of it was even with the bedrails, and then put our mattress on top. Our mattress extends all the way across the width of the bedrails. Another option is to put a large sheet of plywood down over the rails and just use a mattress over that. ( A double size mattress may work, or you may have one made.) Ours is very close to that size and we love it, and sleep on our bed every night.

AUTHENTIC PERIOD DESIGN

CRAFTED BY ADAM AND MARY~

~OUR OWN LINE OF HISTORIC ITEMS HAND MADE BY US FROM 18thc. WOOD~

candlesticks

Made in a garage in Oklahoma or Texas?

~Indeed not, good sir and madam~

...Adam made the first ones years ago for me, hand crafting them using the old lathe at the 18thc. mill that stands just several hundred feet from our home...

Back in the day...

...The mill now

The candlesticks were our own design, closely following 17thc. pewter examples we studied...

Adam hand crafted each one, and I 'aged' and finished them...

Our 17thc. STYLE TREEN CANDLESTICKS

"ADAM'S TREEN"~

We offered a limited number of our own beautiful, hand turned wooden replicas of a 17thc. Dutch hollowcast candlestick sold here by prepaid order Adam hand-makes each one.

The wood comes from an old fashioned, one-man saw mill in the country, not 10 minutes from our home. Each one is hand finished by Mary in a multi-step process.

Adam, who had never done anything of this nature before used the old hand lathe at the c. 1784 mill just down from our home, with the kind permission of our neighbor who owns it.

We were delighted to offer our customers our own uniquely individual and painstakingly hand made and 'aged' copies of a rare original form. Because these are made one at a time by hand, each has it's slight variations and wood grain, and flaws. They are signed and dated.

*NOTE~

WE ARE NOT OFFERINGS THESE AT PRESENT, BUT HOPE TO MAKE MORE IN FUTURE. IF WE DO, WE WILL AGAIN HAVE THEM LISTED FOR ORDER ON OUR SITE.

EX ROGER BACON~

Outstanding period wainscot chair with excellent form and carving.  Made in the 17th century.  Formerly owned by Horton Foote.  Horton Foote was perhaps best known for his Academy Award winning screenplays for the film To Kill a Mockingbird and Tender Mercies.  He also received the Pulitzer Prize in 1995 for his play The Young Man from Atlanta.

The chair was purchased at the sale of Foote's paintings and furniture by Northeast Auctions, NH in 2005. The catalog listing for the chair describes it as follows: 

"Oak with brown-black finish.  The flat crest with ten scoop carved arches above a panel with central diamond with punches, circles within, and over a rail with scooped arches.  The curved armrests with scribed tree carving.  Plank seat with carved rails." 

Typical of a chair of this age, there have been a few minor repairs over the years that don't detract from the look of the chair.  Size:  45.5 inches high, 23.5 inches wide and 23 inches deep.
