Skibo Castle Bed

New to Graham Smith Antiques this week we have a beautiful four poster bed.  From the photograph below you can see the deeply ornate carvings surrounding the structure and get a sense of the overall of size of the bed. With dimensions such as the width being 200cm (78.7 inches) you will need a few volunteers to help erect this bed however the bed does disassemble into manageable sections for transport.  To appreciate the enormity of the bed, a viewing is strongly recommended.

The bed is from Skibo Castle (shown below), located on the Scottish Highlands; it was built during 12th Century but later reconstructed during 19th Century.  It is now the home of the Carnegie Club and members-only hotel, with stunning views and grounds, it is no wonder it was the venue for Guy Ritchie and Madonna’s wedding.  You can find more information, photographs and dimensions on the antiques atlas website.  You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or browse more of our stock online, via our Facebook store.
