BED PARTS

Hello,

Sorry, but we do not sell parts per-se. We can only help with parts for our own beds over the internet or by phone.

If you plan a trip to the store to check on odd parts, call ahead and find out if there is going to be someone there that can help you. People in sales will not be able to help you.

ABOUT US

Papa's Barn, a family business, was founded in 1976 in Fayetteville, North Carolina and is still owned and , operated by the same family. Yes we have computers and we have computerized milling machines but we also have an anvil and hammer.

We started out rummaging through old barns ( thus our name ) in historical Eastern North Carolina and eventually found our way to the Mountains of Tennessee and north into West Virginia and Pennsylvania and south to Savannah, Georgia. It did not take long to discover that there were not enough antique beds to go around so along came the reproductions. We spent several years looking for the most authentic Victorian bed replicas available and I believe we have found them.

Our family has always had an interest in history, especially the Victorian Period. We have, in the last 35 years, been involved in various antique associations and clubs and at present Papa's Barn sponsors the "Duryea Automobile" web site, a non commercial historical site dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the 3-cylinder Duryea Automobiles ( 1898 to 1907 ). You are welcome to visit this site if you like Click Here. The first Duryea (1892-1893) has 1-cylinder and is currently on display at the Smithsonian.

Technical Information on Beds (Victorian Replicas)

DATE: 10-10-99

All tubing is heavy gauge, high strength, cold roll steel. Minimum gauge used is 16 gauge. This tubing is very strong and should be considered when comparing bed quality.

All non-brass painted scroll work and rod is solid hot roll, mild steel with cold finish. This cold finish helps get the same smooth finish on rod and non-brass scroll work as on the tubing.

All casting are poured in place for a tight neat fit. This is very important for several reasons.

All brass tubing and brass fittings are solid brass with a baked-on clear enamel coating. Baked enamel coatings are very tough and should be considered when comparing bed quality.

MORE ON BEDS:
In our opinion, the most unappealing and poorest design feature in an iron bed replica is when the bolts that attach the frame to the bed post, just stick through the bed post and are exposed. You will not find this design feature on any bed in this web site. On the beds we sell, there is a welded plate on the headboard to accept frame bolts, and on the footboard there are welded brackes. The brackets get the footboard away from the mattress so you will have room for your comforter.
