I was contacted by a Rare Victorian visitor about a Shupe & Noble bed that they would like to sell and I thought it would be good to share with everyone for two reasons: 1) the maker is known and is not one that I’ve run across before, and 2) it is one of those contraptions that the Victorians seemed to have loved to conjure up.
This Renaissance Revival bed/desk was made some time after the last patent date of 1881 (there are apparently 3 total patents: ’77, ’78, and ’81). I’m not sure what will happen to your belongings when you open the bed and the drawers are upended face down to the floor.
The bed is for sale for those who might be interested. Use the contact page on the menu above.
