Description
Elegant super king size brass and iron bed made by Winfield and Co. Lovely Winfield quality and details. Original makers plate. R.W.Winfield was founded in 1829 at Cambridge Street, Birmingham and specialised in decorative metal beds. A brass metal bedstead in the French Renaissance style by Winfield was made for the Great Exhibition in 1851, (see D.M.Wyatt, .The Industrial Arts of the Nineteenth Century at the Great Exhibition, Vol I, plate XLIII, reproduced in J.Meyer, Great Exhibitions 1851-1900, p.33). The Art-Journal Crystal Palace Exhibition edition described the bed as 'one of the best objects of its kind ever brought before our notice'. Similar decorative metallic bed pillars by Winfield were described as 'good in design, and of a rich and handsome appearance'. R.W.Winfield came away from the Great Exhibition with a very coveted Council Award, only 174 of these awards were awarded in recognition of great ingenuity and innovation. The bed has been professionally restored with all joints checked with 6 rails adapted to support wood slats and standard modern super king size mattress 6' x 6'6"/180cm x 200cm. The frame has been shot blasted prior to hand paint finish in Little Greene paint company Jack Black. Brass is aged and has been cleaned to maintain aged patina. Original porcelain castors. **Price includes wood slats (sorry not mattress)** As an alternative to the wood slats we can supply a 2" deep upholstered mini box base. We can also supply hand made mattresses in all comfort choices. Please ask for details or look at mattress section of our own web site. Bedsteads have been sourcing, restoring and retailing antique beds and bedroom furniture for over 25 years. We do have many beds awaiting restoration if you are looking for a particular style and can send images if requested. We have our own workshops located along side our showroom in a beautiful medieval barn seven miles south of Bristol. Workshop/store open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm. Saturday 10am -2pm
