Thank you for the images. I am working on you question, it might take up to 10 minutes.

You are right, your bed dates from the early 1930s. Staples & Co is one of the most respected quality bed makers in Brittain. It has a solid structure and I love the condition. Antique beds are popular again at auctions because they look smart, are durable, and perfectly usable. I would value your bed between £ 300 - £400.

Thank you, I’ll have to get it sold

I would suggest because you can sell your bed at retail price, auction estimates are usually lower.

Many Thanks for using Just Answer! Joanna
