This remarkable bed can be two singles or a big double bed at the swish of a zip! Heavy brass with an iron frame, it was ordered new by William Purcell of Saltillo in Mexico. It has the makers name and is in good condition except for a couple of small dents on the brass. It is an interesting shape, the intricate headboard shape can be seen clearly in the photographs, but also notice the footboard brass which is curved outwards to give an extra few inches of space. Mexican circa 1880


36 1/2" wide each bed
76" wide together
82" deep max
73" deep (between head and foot poles)
4' tall foot end brass
6'1 1/2" high head end brass

The bed was ordered new by a wealthy Irish merchant who lived in Saltillo in Mexico. He built a very interesting house, The Casa Purcell (Purcell Manor), which is a Victorian Arts and Crafts style mansion built in the 19th century to a very grand scale. Today it is a cultural centre in Saltillo.
