Four poster bed early Tudor style

Chalvington Oak Range

Four poster bed in early Tudor style. Handmade in solid oak and hand carved with linenfold headboard panels and parchemin panels to the tester ceiling, with four enriched parchemin panels at the centre. Other period features include Tudor cresting around the cornice rails, punched decoration to the headboard and tester framework and hand cut slow spiral twists to the four posts (this is a true four poster as the headboard is set in from the posts - see photos below).

There are two similar examples shown below, both personalised to our clients.

Early 16th century Tudor style hand carved solid oak four poster bed

For our Sussex client (above and first two photos), we based the carved 'knops' on actual 16th century devices, as well as examples found in the architectural joinery and stonework of their manor house.

Our Belgium clients (read their special story here) wanted falconry devices carved onto the square 'knops' on all four posts and supplied us with a number of photos from books and delft tiles, to design from.

As with all our Chalvington range, this piece is bespoke and can be ordered to take a king size, super king or smaller mattress (see our Guide to Mattress Sizes). Price excludes mattress etc. For a simpler version of this bed, with less carving and turned oak finials in place of the wrought-iron ones, see Tudor bed oak 4 poster style.

To see the original version of this bed (in a beautiful oak framed building), designed by Nicholas Berry some years ago and hand-made by him, click: Handmade Tudor style four poster bed in oak framed barn.
