Rope Bed, Jenny Lynd Bed, Spool Bed
Antique Spool Bed
This old bed was a rope bed when it was made years ago. Someone in my family got a spring from Simmons years ago and we used it for years, instead of the ropes. Some call it a Jenny Lind bed, others call it a cannon ball bed.
The spring is about 48” wide, the bed is about 54 wide and about 74” long, known as ¾ size.
I have been told it is maple. Nice shape for a really old piece. We had a full size mattress on it.
