Brass and Iron Childs Cot BB19
Original, quality, late 19th century, child's cot which will dismantle into five panels. This superb example has a wrought iron frame with cast iron mounts, brass top rails and decorative brass mounts, knobs and top collars. The ironwork has been professionally sand blasted and stove enamelled white and the brass has been polished and lacquered, although the lacquer may be removed at no extra cost. One brass rail is a replacement cut to suit. The original castors, in cast iron with ceramic wheels, have been retained and all is complete and in good order. For safety's sake it would be advisable for an inner bumper protection to be fitted if it is required to be used as a cot. This would also make a super feature as a jardiniere in the hall or landing, a small sofa with one side panel removed or a small single bed with both the side panels taken out, so many uses. Some minor chips to the paintwork, some minor dents to the brass, otherwise all is complete and in good and working order.
