This four-poster bed with sixteen ornate drawers was made for the daughter of a sculptor.

 

He had previously made some carvings for a bed and these were incorporated as a frieze that runs around the top of the bed. Normally the top has a frame to hang pelmet, drapes etc. from.
 

The drawers have recessed love-heart handles. We always use hand cut dovetails for drawer boxes

 

The customer wanted a shelf at the foot of this bed for some soft toys. In this version, there are four false drawer fronts to maintain form.
