We are pleased to be offering today a gorgeous and stunning solid mahogany pair of poster twin beds made and sold by the famous Berkey and Gay furniture company back in the 1930s. These beds came into our shop with the finish all crazed where the varnish has aged over the years.
So we completely stripped, sanded, stained, sealed with multiple coats of lacquer, sanded again and then covered it in multiple coats of satin sheen lacquer to produce his expensive looking rich luxurious reddish brown finish. The beds are gorgeous with the real true pineapple finials, multi turn posts on top of a flared long turn multi turn spindle post that goes into a multi turn bun foot. The shields and cross rails are solid mahogany.
This pair of beds are bolt on and are sturdier than you will ever need. The box spring sits on top of the rail with an inside guide to hold it in place with the mattress on top.
The beds are tagged Berkey and Gay with the circular emblem. They are simply a fantastic pair that we are excited to be offer today. The outside dimensions are 41 inches wide, 54 inches high to the post, 35 inches high to the cross spindle, 60 inches high on the headboard,
47 inches high on the spindle on the headboard. The rails are 40 inches across and 76 inches long, so it would easily accommodate a modern day box spring and mattress.
