A late Regency, king sized four-poster bed in mahogany. At the center of the curved headboard is a rectangular block defined by alternating, vertically-positioned slats,flanked on either side by arched horizontally positioned slats. The four parts making the canopy are attached to the posts and interconnected on the long side. The posts have carving at the top followed by a tapered reeded section and a cylinder of spiral carving. The bed, that can be fully disassembled, rests on short carved legs that flare out at the bottom and terminate in ball feet.
