Doll's four-post bedstead with hangings
Overall: 17 x 8 x 12 1/4 in. ( 43.2 x 20.3 x 31.1 cm )
Wood four post bedstead with full set of floral block-printed cotton bed hangings including linen mattress and pillow.
The floral cotton used for these bedhangings was likely printed in England in the 1820s. The fabric, which shows signs of wear and repair, may have originally decorated a full-size bed and been adapted later for this doll-size bedstead.
