3ft Antique Victorian Iron Bedstead – Ref. BA 363C36


A pleasing mid period Victorian iron bedstead featuring classical, curly centres in flat reeded wire throughout, held captive by decorative cast iron chills. Simple iron bedsteads such as this make a wonderfully understated feature in both traditional and more relaxed, contemporary bedroom schemes.

With is slowly curved outer main frame, this bedstead would compliment the eves or attic of a period property such as a country cottage. It would be just as at home however in the smaller box-rooms that have become so prevalent in more modern homes.

Bed Bazaar always has an extensive, world class selection of similar bedsteads and it was these simple iron models that first brought our company such attention and international notoriety.  This initially came via an extensive article on the then fledgling Bed Bazaar business in The World of Interiors magazine’s regular ‘Shops’ feature.  This was written by the magazines aspiring editor Ilse Crawford in the late 1980’s and the feature’s images were photographed by photographer David Gamble.  Ilse beautifully crafted feature still brings wonderful customers to our door nearly four decades later; thank you WOI.

Product Description

Finish / Finishes:
Stove Enamel Paint Finishes: Currently standing unrestored this bedstead would benefit from our cost price inclusive grit blasting process and a traditional oven backed stive enamel paint finish. Standard colours, again cost price inclusive, are Satin Black and Glossy Ivory (BS 10B15). Other oven baked, stove enamel colours are available at additional cost.

Hand, Brush Painted Finishes: Alternatively this bedstead could be grit blasted clean, primed and hand brush painted in a colour of your choice. Bed Bazaar commonly uses paint suppliers such as Farrow & Ball, Mylands or The Little Green Paint Co. Once painted the point of difference we offer is to soft-sand, tone and wax the paint to give an authentic patina and add character and history back to the beds final finish. Our hand painted finishes look sensational, they are the best in our industry by some margin.
