This natural iron colored antique cast iron and brass bed full size bed has an interesting variety of castings including cast corner posts rather than brass knobs. Some of the iron castings are rather whimsical and remind me of feet with up-curled toes or fancy boots from the early 1900s. It has a pleasing design with nice tall headboard. The pewter color is a neutral background that will fit into any color palette.
This metal bed was refinished by sandblasting off the old lead paint and then baking on a powder coat clear finish in a satin sheen. Because the castings
take longer to cool after the baking process, they have a slightly different, warm tone to them.
Before WW1, iron beds were handmade and could take one day to several days to make. The First World War ended the era of iron beds because it required all iron to be diverted towards the war efforts. After the war, similarly styled beds were mass produced on assembly lines and were constructed from aluminum a metal that was much easier to work with.
If you are using this full size iron bed frame with an extra-long full
mattress, let us know and we will lengthen the rails to accommodate the fit. These longer rails would also take a queen size mattress, but please be
aware that your box spring would overhang the edges by 3” on either side.
We supply the side rails and cross supports.
Bedding and accessories not included.
Headboard: 62"; Footboard: 45.5"; Width: 54"; Drop: 14"
