Bed from Room 18 - Blue Bedroom, Main Building Section, Pendle Hall. From centre of back wall.
It was created by Felicity Clemons as part of a 40 project to create a grand fully-furnished Georgian style country dolls' house. The project began in the 1940's when Felicity's daughter, Antonia, was given a three-room dolls' house by her grandmother. Mrs Clemons was not happy with its scale or authenticity and so began a rebuilding project which resulted in a four storey grand house, now known as Pendle Hall. Although some items were purchased during shopping trips to Melbourne, the majority of furnishings were constructed by Felicity's own hands, using numerous reference books and magazines.
Wooden four poster bed. Four turned posts painted blue and gold. Head and base of bed also painted blue and gold. Bed includes mattress and teal cover.
