Antique jenny lind spindle spool bed. Heirloom shabby chic farmhouse country cottage.
Comes with the original bed rails, which is very rare. Also original bed rail hardware in excellent condition.
Sturdy, good-working condition ready for customization. Either keep the original finish with full restoration or chalk paint finish with glaze and seal while sill maintaining the original character of the piece. The other option is to lime wash the piece, which will restore the wood and give the bed a modern look (restoration hardware style) leaving the original patina finish shining through. This is not a reproduction. It is an original bed from the 1800s.Headboard: 53.25" wide x 37.5" high, corner finials are 37.5 tall. Footboard: 53.25" wide x 30" high, corner finials are 36.5 tall. Rails: 6-11" wide x 76" long.
This bed accommodates a 3/4 size mattress (48" x 75"). It has always been my obsession.
For me, visiting furniture stores is like visiting art galleries and admiring the craftsmanship of great masters. But, nowadays, it is so much harder to do so. A lot of pieces are not even made of real wood, mass produced, and without a soul.
My mission is to find every forgotten gem and to give it new life, to give it a second chance without losing its identity, to find it a new home. If you're interested, i can do custom finishes on almost any vintage piece.
