The Eldred Wheeler Low Post Bed is an excellent example of a New England country style design found in rural homes during the second half of the 18th Century.
The lines of the bed are simple; more functional than decorative. The straight Chippendale legs are topped with well proportioned ball turnings. The New England Federal Headboard is pictured in this photo. The 8 1/2″ footboard shown is optional. It is placed now with a 5″ space above the top of the foot rail for an upcharge of $200.
Post height is 47 1/4”.
Height from floor to top of rail is 17”.
