Bessie Pearl (Underwood) Starkey, Grandmother. Purchased at auction around 1950. Age of bed unknown. It appears to be American Victorian Half Tester. Canopy missing. Heavy frame, not sure what type of wood. Stamp on back of headboard.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I don't see where a canopy would have been supported so calling this a tester bed is not wholly accurate.
