Good morning, Louis,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

What a lovely bed! It appears to be Anglo Indian / Colonial and that the wicker caning is in such good condition is really quite amazing. As you might imagine, beds like these do not come to auction every day so it has been difficult to find one exactly like this one to use as a price comparison so the following recent auction sales of teak and wicker beds have been used to gauge the current fair market value of this bed:

https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/47651969_20th-c-carved-indonesian-teak-king-bed

Based on the photogaphs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
An Anglo-Indian carved teakwood bed
mid to late 19th century
Queen size, with caned platform and elaborately grapevine carved headboard and footboard.
$700-1,000 (represents a fair market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary).

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.

Thank you so much! I appreciate your quick response. I've had trouble finding any comparison so thank you for the links. I have another bed very similar. I think we will sell both of them

You're very welcome. If the other bed you are referring to is the other one in one of the photos, it would not have quite the same value as it appears smaller and less elaborately carved, probably in the $500-800 range?

Thanks and yes I figured that as well. I appreciate all your help. 5 stars for this website!

We appreciate that, Louis, many thanks and good luck to you!
