Antique Wicket Old Door King Bed
What a find. Rare Antique Wicket Old Wood King Bed is actually a door within a door that is over 150 years old. Steeped in history. Spanish-Mexican history which has the legacy of excellent handmade doors. Coveted for the imperfections and reclaimed from time with employing floating panels; the door’s simplicity belies it’s rareness.
This stunning bed is little over eight feet tall with a platform base to allow the bedding and the headboard to be the main focus. Tones of weathered brown and toffee make this comfortable in any timbered bedroom with the tall ceilings. If you want that cozy majesty of being in another country (but you’re home) ceiling height has to be nine feet. No such thing as too big…the bed is the star.
Did you know? Wickets are small, narrow doors within a larger castle or hacienda door. Door within a door. Originally, it was to allow one or two people pass through without opening the entire door. It’s rather rare to find. The very tall doors with pairs of narrow vertical panels is the indicator that they are from around 1850. The size of the smaller door within the door is typically one person wide.
