AN EARLY 19TH CENTURY MAHOGANY HEPPLEWHITE CAMPAIGN BED

11,500.00

England, circa 1800

A fine early 19th century mahogany campaign bed with turned wooden posts surmounted by urn finials, arched canopy and headboard.

George Hepplewhite (1727 – 1786) was an English cabinetmaker. He is regarded as having been one of the "big three" of English furniture makers of the 18th century, along with Thomas Sheraton and Thomas Chippendale. There are no pieces of furniture made by Hepplewhite or his firm known to exist but he gave his name to a distinctive style of light, elegant furniture that was fashionable between about 1775 and 1800 and reproductions of his designs continued through the following centuries. He was a prolific maker and turned his hand to beds, chairs and cabinet furniture. One characteristic that is seen in many of his designs is a shield-shaped chair back, where an expansive shield appeared in place of a narrower splat design.
