4ft6 Antique Victorian Iron Bedstead – Ref. BA 9541C54


An extremely rare, early Victorian ‘cartwheel’ iron bedstead. This fine model is built to the most robust standards of the day with very rare to see thick tubes used to make up the petal themed centres. This would have been a real task for the maker to produce and in turn it would still really challenge even the most skill fabrication workshops today! The

Bed Bazaar always has an extensive, world class selection of similar bedsteads as it was these Victorian master pieces and generally the more simplistic, iron models that first brought our company such attention and international notoriety some decades back now. This event was initially via an extensive article on our company in the regular ‘Shops’ feature of The World of Interiors magazine in the late 1980’s. Written by the magazines aspiring editor Else Crawford and photographed by David Gamble, Ilse’s beautifully crafted feature still brings wonderful customers to our door today, nearly four decades later.
