This is an antique opium bed that I purchased from an antique store in Shanghai, China 45 years ago. The owner of the shop said the bed was approximately 60 years old, when I bought it, and I have had it for 45 years, making it 105 years old. It is a lovely piece and in excellent condition. It can be used as a sofa with pillows in a living room or den, or, as a twin bed (with a mattress) for a bedroom. It is beautifully made with dark Zitan wood, a hardwood from China that is dark brown with a fine grain, and heavy curved Chinese feet. The bed is very strong, and sealed with an Asian lacquer, which is native to China. The decorative side and back pieces (the railings) (see the pictures) can be attached and removed. The ends and back pieces (railings) are made with wooden locking blocks—a joint system -- which was common to furniture made in China years ago -- there are no nails in this bed. The dimensions are: 82"Long; 43" Wide; 18" High from the floor to the bed; and 32" High from the floor to the top of the decorative railings. If you need any additional information, or have any questions, please don't hesitate to call and ask. It is a beautiful piece; I am selling it because I am in my late 70s and I no longer have room for it. I can be reached by phone show contact info . This is my landscaping business phone, however, it is a landline, and WILL NOT ACCEPT TEXTS; however, it is the easiest way to reach me, and if I miss your call, please leave me a message and I will return your call shortly. The message will say Kennedy Landscaping, and Rockey (my nickname).
