Child’s Doll Bed

Description

GH0408

A period antique miniature Federal walnut turned post bed featuring bulbous turned posts, a scrolled headboard, a joined frame and bulbous turned feet.  The bed is occupied by an early 20th century stuffed bear with appropriate linens and bedding, as well as a late 19th century brass and walnut glove warmer which serves as a bed warmer.
The bed is from New England, 1810 – 1835.

Why do we love it?  Clearly someone wanted to pamper their child, and the child wanted to pamper a special doll.  We suppose it was a home full of sweet dreams all around.
