Antique Iron Beds with Brass Accents

In the earlier 1800's brass bed frames were all the rage. Iron beds did not hold the prestige of their brass counterpart.  So in an attempt to draw a broader acceptance and clientele, bed manufacturers started displaying iron frames with accents of brass trim.  Sometimes merely a small center finial on the head and footboard.  Sometimes an elaborate amount of scrolled brass that was integral to the overall design of the bed. Little did the manufactures know at the time that  iron bed frames would far exceed the popularity, value and collectibility  of the then more popular brass bed frames.
