White "baseball" or 'wedding ring' style iron full double bed. This bed has had a bit of a rough life. It looks like it has stood on its head more than
a few times. This is shown on the wide iron piping on the footboard which is bent and pitted. Very character-filled!
This bed uses a modern day metal bed frame. It started out life with hitches to which the side rails attached. They were damaged and have been removed.
(If you already have a modern bedframe, I can deduct $125 from the price.)
At one point in time, it had been sandblasted and refinished in a powder coat high gloss white finish. After years of storage in an unheated space, it
has started to rust in a few places so it is being sold in shabby chic condition at a discounted price.
If you would like this antique bed restored by sandblasting and having a baked on powder coat paint applied, we can arrange that for you. It would cost
an additional $300. (Additional fees may apply depending on color choice, turnaround time and special requests.)
Before World War 1 ended the era of iron beds, cast iron beds were handmade. The start of the war meant that all iron was diverted towards the war effort.
After the war, metal beds were mass produced on assembly lines and were constructed from aluminum a metal that was much lighter and easier to work
