A fine and elegant Regency four poster mahogany bed. The high shaped tester or canopy with a well carved egg and dart band is supported by two simple posts to the rear and by a pair of tapering columns with acanthus carved detail to the front raised on sturdy bun feet. The brass curtain rails and headboard are later. Bedding not included. English, circa 1810.

Notes: Four poster beds date back to the late 14th century and often served as important status symbols. Frequently also called ‘tester beds', they had curtains to the front and sides to keep in the heat and keep out drafts and sunlight.
