We find, restore and sell a lot of beds. There are now quite a lot of people retailing them from trade sources. The links down the chain and perceived apparent extravagance of 1880-1900 factory produced pieces seems to conspire to inflate prices. The best known types, probably easily-recognized Louis XV and similar, usually cost £650 -799; unusually flamboyant chaps a little more. This compares favourably with a middle range divan base which it will see off by a century or more.

Early beds are often beautiful or quaint but small and usually only one sided (there is a decorative front side, and a simple side which is not seen as against the wall). There are few proper full double sizes before 1880. Five foot widths (king size) are extremely rare and mostly early 20thC. Big lit bateau in any size we build in Walnut and cherry - new - with one high, one low end or twin high ended. These can be antiqued, distressed etc.
