    Need some help identifying this antique bed

    My wife found a set of matching twin beds and each headboard has the same numbers stamped into the leg. We don't know anything about them except the previous owner's mother bought them for her at an antique shop in the 1940's. I'd appreciate any infos or links that would help us identify what we bought. Thanks

    Don't know about the maker, but that is some pretty nice looking wood, carving and turning. Looks like it was originally a top dollar item.

    I believe they are known as Pineapple poster beds.
    Most likely mahogany.
    Pretty popular early 1900's style.

    My sister has the same exact bed in a full size version. The bed belonged to my Grandparents and was most likely purchased in the '30's.

    If that is the only marking it was likely sold by a door to door salesman that would run an account for the purchaser. I have several pieces from the early 1900's that family members purchased in such a fashion, markings are very limited, usually just a style number.
