About this piece
Price was £49,000
Silvered pressed metal and parcel gilt four poster bed. Stamped throughout with the diamond registration mark
England, circa 1860
In this superb example of Winfield's renowned output, the canopy is surmounted by a gilded coronet with eight tubular supports, leading to a tester decorated with pierced strapwork and finials to each corner. The four uprights feature chased foliage decoration and central bosses. The arched pierced headboard is decorated with gilt pressed metal cartouches
The ease of construction, light-weight tubular metalwork and informal nature of the attachment for bed hangings leads us to believe that this bed was commissioned from Winfield and destined for use in the British colonies
The bed is a very interesting Victorian concoction of the new techniques of mass production being utilised to create a rather exclusive, even aristocratic, piece of furniture. Very much a creature of its time
