Townsend Four Post Bed

Mahogany Four Post Bed with ball and claw feet

The spectacular, figured Mahogany headboard is one of the beautiful elements of this bed, along with a simplicity of ornament, wonderfully shaped legs and feet, and graceful, fluted posts. This bed is based on a bed made by John Townsend in Newport, RI around 1775. It is finished with aniline dyes, oil, and shellac. The bolt covers are from Whitehall Hardware.
