This four-poster bed was commissioned by the owner of a beautiful 17th century Yorkshire house.  The room accommodated what was possibly the original bed when the client first saw it, he was saddened to find that it was not included in the sale of the house so was keen to commission a bed which would follow the existing bedroom in style and detail.

Oak was sourced, sawn and seasoned locally, ensuring the best figure and authenticity.  The bed was designed to reflect the existing panelling of the room.

Carved panels were copied from the existing room panels, except for a small detail in the central tester panel which displayed a decorative 17th century style boot, carved in ebony with antique ivory laces, this was in reference to the owner's family history as boot and shoe manufacturers.

The bed contains two secret compartments.

Current cost would be in the region of 11,000
