WASHINGTON FOLDING FIELD BEDSTEAD

In the photo below, two variations of Washington’s field beds are shown set up in a tent and ready for use. Documentation exists for his use of both, at different times and locations.

Foreground is Stool-Bed, comprised of three separate folding stools with head, side and foot boards. Construction is oak, with hemp supports and forged iron hardware.

Behind is the Folding Field Bedstead which is a remarkable feat of engineering, as the entire assembly folds neatly and stows in the rope handled pine box against the tent wall. Sturdy enough for daily use, yet delicate and refined in appearance. This is an elegant bed, suitable for high ranking officers. Gorgeous details throughout include walnut structural members, forged iron hardware, and linen privacy curtains.
