MODERN SPINDLE BED DESIGNED BY T.H. ROBSJOHN-GIBBINGS FOR WIDDICOMB
United States, circa 1951; stamped "1658 12/51", otherwise unmarked
Item # 006TBE04L
This fantastic mid-century modern bed was designed by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings and was manufactured by Widdicomb. It is designed with walnut in the "Sherry" finish which highlights the subtle grain patterns of the walnut veneers in the headboard. The footboard uses spindles set in the molded frame. The entire form breaks down with ease, the side rails lifting quickly out of the notches within the foot and head boards. The bed would benefit from being refinished, though it remains quite attractive in present condition.
Measurements: 57 1/8" D x 82" L x 34 1/4" H (to headboard)
In estate-found condition, would benefit from being refinished. Scars and scuffs to surface throughout, some light chipping to edges of side rails. Sturdy and strong.
