Charles Wheeler ran a small woodworking shop and construction company until he retired in 1929. This bed was part of a set (we are working on the other pieces, so stay tuned).
After we fixed the rotting wood and restored the gilding.
Hopefully by the time the entire set is pulled out and fixed, we will have come to a decision about the finish and level of rehab we want to/can/should give it.
Lets see what the dresser, mirror, and matching bookshelves look like when we get them and we will go from there.
