Fitting the bed base to antique French metal bed

  • On most antique metal beds the adjustable bed base will ideally sits on all four corners of the frame.
  • Most antique metal beds, French and British, fix together with a ‘jigsaw’ fitting. This cast iron fitting is usually where the base sits.
  • As you can see neither the sides not ends touch the metal frame and the construction of the base means it is self supporting in the centre.
