5ft Victorian Brass & Iron Bedstead – Ref. 96025B60


A pleasingly simple, mid-period Victorian Brass & Iron bedstead of charming design with the popular, lighter feel of 1¼” main posts. Bedsteads of this style and design have almost timeless appeal when finished in a clean, crisp white enamel as shown here. The practicalities a bedstead brings to one’s home can never be understated either. Standing upon just four legs makes them easy to level on a cottage’s uneven floor, and there is the added advantage of being able to hoover right beneath a Victorian bedstead too. By contrast, the modern Divan, being so low to the floor, can harbor so much dust in such a short time, and opportunities to hoover and remove this can be few and far between.

Product Description

So, in all, a popular model and a best-selling line for us today as it would have been for our Victorian forbears. Featuring ½” gate laths and decorative cast-iron joints throughout, not least the pleasing central cast-iron ‘shield’ joints that rise to meet and support the bedstead’s brass top rails. As a simple model, this bedstead’s brass mounts are accounted for by straight ¾” OD brass top rails, spun bulbous collars, and classic round ball top-knobs. The head and footboard gates are further appointed with additional vertical brass tubes complete with ferrules and half-drops.

A delightfully simple bedstead and a textbook exercise of the age-old adage ‘less is more’. Quick Ship Programme.

Mattresses & Bedstead Bases:
The images shown here of bed ref: 96025B60 show this bedstead complete with a combined mattress and bedstead height of 32cm (12½”). A Brass & Iron bedstead such as this one could accommodate a deeper mattress and base height but this should not exceed 40cm (16”). One should be mindful that making a bedstead’s overall mattress height either too high or too low can impact the aesthetic integrity of the overall scheme one is seeking to create. As such we recommend speaking to one of our highly experienced team for further advice on our own Suffolk Journeyman range of mattresses and bedsteads bases.
