Antique Victorian Style Full-size Bed Frame. Gorgeous, wooden, full-size, bed frame salvaged from Northeastern Pennsylvania. Included are a headboard, footboard, and 2 side rails. The set was made by, "Showers Brothers Furniture Company, " of Bloomington, Indiana sometime during the first half of the previous century. All parts are made of walnut wood.
Our carpenter thoroughly inspected all parts. He had to repair the bottom of one of the posts of the headboard, and glue-down some of the veneer that had delaminated from the bottom of the center panel of the headboard. All parts are in good, structural condition, but do have many cosmetic blemishes.This set would be good candidate for sanding and painting, or a complete refinish if you prefer to see the wood grain. The head and foot boards have nicks, scratches, and spots of paint. The headboard has some veneer missing from the upper edges of its rear side, however, as long as the headboard will be up against a wall, the missing veneer will never be seen. It also has 3 half-round portions of its feet missing (see close up photo). Since these parts are just decorative and not necessary to install the bed, and are also not easily noticed, he didn't make them in order to keep the cost down. The rails are in rougher shape with chips, scrapes, and a few spots of missing veneer. If you plan on painting the rails, they will need little work to get them paint-ready. However, getting them ready for stain will require filling the missing portions of veneer with similar veneer. All parts are strong, sturdy, and ready for another lifetime of service. All of the decorative elements including the beaded molding and fancy motif at the top of the headboard, and 3 appliqués in the middle of the footboard are completely intact.
This set is definitely worth investing some time to clean up. Sets like this are getting harder and hard to come by--don't miss out! Headboard : 56 1/4 " W x 50" H (posts are 3 thick).
