A stained beech, adjustable Day Bed or Couch by Carters with caned panels and replaced feather cushions.
The design of this Day Bed follows that of the Ilkley Couch by Robinsons. It was a very popular design at the end of the 19th century for its versatility and the comfort it offered.
The 3 ratcheted sections allow the user to set the Day Bed up into numerous positions from flat to a chair with foot rest. The head section has 11 possible positions, the middle 5 and the foot 6. The bold legs have patent ceramic casters and are removable on wooden threads. Once removed, the head section is also hinged to reduce the length of the bed for storage. The model number 66393 is stamped to the back of a panel.
This Day Bed can be adjusted to suit the comfort of the user or laid out flat as a spare bed. Circa 1900.
