Mattress not included.
An original vintage Ercol bed made in beechwood with bow-shaped head and foot ends. These are now rare in the UK, where this one was made and bought, and almost impossible to find in South Africa. It is called a divan since it is such a beautiful item that it can also be used as a daybed in a living room or sunroom.
The Ercol company was established in 1920 in High Wycombe in England by Lucian R Ercolani, an Italian furniture designer who was intent on designing relevant and honest furniture. The company is still going, under Ercolani's great grandson.
The size of the mattress is 188 x 91 cm, which is a three-quarter size. Take note that the mattress is not included.
It has the model no. (358) stamped on the inside of the frame, but not the Ercol logo, which is an indication that it is an early model, from the 1950's.
Condition: Stripped and sealed. One of the long and four of the short dowels (in the head and foot ends) were missing when we found the bed, but we manufactured replacements from a similar coloured wood (light oak).
No reservations. Payment secures a sale. We cannot reserve any products.
