Beautiful antique bed. With the canopy over it like that it reminds me of that Doris Day movie... can't think of the name of it.

I've always wanted a 4-poster bed but my bedroom's too small for it. :(

Beautifully captured, historic piece. There is always something so impressive and romantic in the old four poster beds.

I'm already loving this theme. A four-poster bed never crossed my mind. That's a very cool and unique one. Happy weekend to you.

Carver said...

What a great bed and take on the theme. That's one I wouldn't have thought of even though I have a four poster bed.

It doesn't look like a very comfy bed! I would love a four-poster though.

Not too much privacy there for the Sultan and his family.

That is a wonderful scene to see and get to shoot.
What a magnificent bed! One would need a stool or stairs to hit the sack!

Mine is up over at Flo's Place

Such sharp detail. you are quite a traveller :-)

Alice Audrey said...

That's quite the bed.

Dennis Villegas said...

That's the bed o a rich man (or woman). We have our own version of four-poster bed here in the Philippines which antique collectors call as "Ah Tay".

laagan said...

thanks for dropping by my site

sammawow said...

What a great idea for the "four" theme! I always wanted a four poster bed!

Heart of Rachel said...

It's a great looking antique bed.

the donG said...

if all the bed will be as big as that, i wonder how the houses will look like there.

but ive seen some old beds here in the philippines with a cover but not as big as this one. good that they preserved it.

bw said...

I presume historic rulers have used this precious relic from the past. Great that they preserved it :)
