This was a case of a deal too good to pass up. I saw this in an auction flyer. It didn't have rails, but the bed was well over 54" wide, so it was desirable in that it could fit a standard full size mattress. Many early beds are too narrow and will require a 3/4 or special made mattress-- something to KNOW if you are in the market for an antique bed!
I left a very low bid and the auctioneer promised to deliver it to my area for $20.
I ended up the high bidder at about $100.
I paid about $200 for the wood rails and refinish job. The guy who did the work for me wanted to buy it!
The bed ended up in my oldest daughters room. She is away in college, so I was able to take a few shots. Before this bed, I only had cannon ball post beds-- it was nice to get something different.
While I purchased this about 15 years ago, bargains still abound in the antique furniture market.
