The bed, a masterpiece of american furniture-making, was created in the 1850s for the new orleans market and is signed by its maker, charles lee. The dream-weaver mattress was specially made to fit the over-queen sized proportions.
Adjoining the new orleans room, the veranda room is a massive bedroom featuring a plantation made full-tester bed and a cannon ball bed, both from the 1840's. The full tester, of rattle and snap plantation provenance, retains it beautifully-restored silk canopy.
