Early 19th century American painted sacking bottom bed (also commonly referred to as a rope bed). It features lovely stenciled decoration and the surface appears to be original. Overall measurements are approximately 41" tall, 75" long, and 37 wide. Imperfect, antique, pre-owned, used condition.It was cut down at some point and made smaller, possibly to accommodate a smaller room for a child. The headboard has a straight cut down the center, and there is a board fastened to it on the back side, probably to reinforce the headboard. We think the foot rails were cut on each end to accommodate the change in size, so the modification is not as obvious at the foot of the bed. This is an early bed and therefore is not a modern standard size bed, and you would probably need to have a mattress special ordered to fit it. The side rails are opposable screw in rails, and they do not fit very snugly anymore; with a little tightening/modification they would work fine. While it is in nice antique condition and the paint looks good, it is more than 150 years old and there are dings, scratches, and it does show wear commensurate with use.
