The prominent scrollwork on this head and footboard is secured in place with decorative banding. And the 12 solid castings give the bed a playful character not found in most iron beds. The heavy tubing creating the overall shape of the bed display softly rounded shoulders that give it historic appeal. Another elevating feature to the bed is the finish. It carries an intricacy that may not be noticed at first glance. When viewed up close the finish glows with an inner warmth that warrants the name Rusty Gold, and makes it a perfect match for a warm toned bedding ensemble. The overall height of the headboard is 52Ó and the footboard reaches 36Ó.
