Made of solid mahogany, this is a wonderful acanthus carved pineapple finial fluted poster bed that probably dates from the 1930s era. This bed is a bit confusing. It has heavy bolt rails, that look just like they came off a rope bed. The size is 53.5 inches across the rails, so a modern box spring would fit on top of the rail, and angle brackets would hold it in place. The length, however, is only 72 inches long. We can extend the posts to the side rails another three inches, so a modern-day box spring and mattress will fit perfectly for another $100, or you can have your box spring cut back a bit. The rest of the bed is in its original finish, in a dark mahogany stain, and is in much better condition than pineapple post beds of this age usually are. First of all, look at the pineapples, which look like period pineapples from the 1820s. They have rice carving and little drapes carved on the posts, along with the fluting on all four posts. The headboard has a return on the top rail, with acanthus carving, and an extra long and wide shield. The posts are 60 inches high on the footboard, and the cross stretcher is 39.5 inches. The headboard posts are 66 inches tall, the crest is 49 inches high. Overall, this bed is in great condition. It has a white glaze where the mattress comes up to the headboard, which we can probably rub out before shipping.
