Our business is based in the beautiful village of Debenham in Suffolk, England, which is close to Constable country. I take our pride in being the 4th generation in my family to be antique dealers who have been buying and selling antiques for over a century. With our expanding web presence in the UK, we also have a base in the USA with Debenham Antiques inc. Along with expanding our international web based business, we also quite unusually retain our high street presence, with a large retail shop which we use to display our finest goods, and to offer the client a more personal service for the those who like to discuss their needs. Here at Debenham Antiques we try to cater for all styles and tastes, and we believe this is reflected in our stock as you can find anything from 15th century carvings to late 20th century fine quality furniture. We have experts in furniture and paintings who buy our goods with safe knowledge. We also offer a wide range of fine quality reproduction furniture which is all lovingly handcrafted by ourselves locally, using the best timbers. Debenham Antiques works hard to ensure that we provide the client with a quality experience from start to finish.

Description
Debenham antiques are pleased to offer this stunning and unique 4 poster bed of grand proportions. Quite likely to have been made by Hobbs & co. This bed used to be in the honeymoon suite of the angel hotel, bury st edmunds in england, which is a landmark hotel in the east of England. Still baring 1930's paper labels of simkin's depository of colchester on its frame, puts this bed being in the east of england for a number of years. During being restored we discovered welsh and english newspapers inside the porcelain sections dated from 1889, which provides us with a very accurate date to when it was made. This bed is constructed from many sections and elements so our description will start with the 3 sided architectural cornice, which is decorated with a lower reeded edge, salt and pepper tooth inlay, contrasting coloured mahogany and finished with alternating cross and ball applied carvings.   these 3 sections attach to the 1 piece canopy roof, which has 4 panels each decorated with inlaid fans and stringing.   underneath the canopy roof are 3 removable brass rods for the suspension of a fabric or curtain. The back board echoes the canopy roof in its design, complete with a panelled cushioned headrest and block back legs and supports, the main feature of the bed and what makes it different from anything we have seen before are the front posts, which comprise of seperate sections of porcelain, very much in the majolica taste.   urn and vase shapes each decorated with painted flowers/butterflies further decorated with gold leaves and gilt elements. Interior padded footboard, with a beautifully inlaid bed end with carved swags and roundels.   beautifully hand carved  front legs, with applied plaques that cover the construction holes, terminating on carved front foot. Both side rails have been inlaid and strung the same way, with the same carved design as the front end.   comes supplied with a duvan which probably dates from the 1950's. Duvan is supported by the rails, wooden slats and a front to back cross beam. This bed is a minimum 4 person job for construction. Expected minor surface marks to woodwork. Restoration to porcelain elements which understandably had accumalated a few chips and marks of the years. Please see pictures with all possible dimensions on. A truly wonderful and unique bed, ready to adorn any home.
