This antique cast iron bed, matched pair set, is classic, beautiful and has a very pleasing but simple design. A lovely lady north of Toronto was
selling the contents, including this matched pair, of her family cottage which was built in 1911 and purchased by her family only a few years
These iron beds were produced by a company called the Ideal Bedding Company Limited of Toronto. They also had branches in Montreal and Winnipeg. In 1919
they were absorbed by Simmons, Limited, a mattress maker still in business to this day. A picture from a 1910 catalog shows a similar cast iron bed.
During the restoration process, the old lead paint was sandblasted off and replaced with a durable baked on lead free paint in a antique white finish. It's
an exceptionally beautiful shade of ivory/off-white/coffee cream colour.
If you are using these iron bed frames with extra-long full double mattresses, 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.
Side rails and cross supports included.
Bedding and accessories not included.
Headboard: 51"; Footboard: 38"; Width: 54"; Drop: 14"
