Anglo-Indian Mahogany Four Poster BedMid 19th century
A late Regency, king sized four-poster bed in mahogany. At the centre of the curved headboard is a rectangular block defined by alternating, vertically-positioned slats, flanked on either side by arched horizontally positioned slats. This is mirrored in the foot board in a rectangular form. The four parts making the canopy are attached to the posts and are on the long side interconnected. The posts have carving at the top followed by a tapered reeded section and a cylinder of spiral carving. The beams that hold the mattress base and connect the four posts are also partly carved with a nice floral design. The bed, that can be fully disassembled, rests on short carved legs that flare out at the bottom and terminate in ball feet.
