A very impressive oak full tester bed, the headboard with three early 17th century caryatid figures, a pair of panels with applied cartouches and above are three panels carved with inlaid stars and the diamond shapes with flying pennants which are typical of the Dales area of Yorkshire. The panelled tester has a central inlaid star and the footboard is decorated with a further three carved and inlaid panels. It has a fine pair of 17th century carved posts. The bed is basically 17th century, but as with most such beds, it has later parts and restorations.
From a fine Elizabethan manor house in Norfolk.
