    I have researched this bed for years. I know what it is, a what it was used for, and I find many similar in style. I am still trying to figure out who made it, and where it was made (possibly Indiana?) I have only seen one other bed with stained glass inserts (located in Nashville, TN).
    We actually own two cabinet beds. I believe the other bed that we have is more of a mass produced version "in the style of" this one. In past research, I believe I saw something about Sears selling cabinet beds via catalog. This particular bed is MUCH heavier and is definitely more ornate than our other.
