6ft Victorian Brass & Iron Bedstead – Ref. 9723B72


Popular mid period Victorian Brass & Iron bedstead.  Featuring robust 2” main posts and thicker 5/8” OD gate tubes.  This bedsteads Birmingham maker would have sourced his brass mounts from local firm, Samuel Heath.  These included bulbous brass collars, cast brass orange segment top knobs, pressed brass daisy badges and a stud-embossed central wheel.  Our sale price includes our full and professional restoration, completed in Bed Bazaar’s own workshops.

This bedstead is currently standing in excellent, as found condition having been the subject of a previous restoration, most probably  in the 3rd quarter of the 20th century.  As such it can be either cleaned and sympathetically re-worked and sold looking pretty much as it does here or have full workshop restoration.  When less work is carried out it generally follows that the bedsteads sales price will be lower than indicated here.

Mattresses & Bedstead Bases:
The images shown here of bed ref: 9725B72 show this bedstead complete with a combined mattress and bedstead height of 37cm (12”).  A statement Brass & Iron bedstead such as this one could accommodate a deeper mattress and base height but if  this exceeds 40cm (14½”).  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.
