About our Brass Bed Frames

Today, a bed is the centrepiece of the bedroom that dominates the décor of a bedroom. Traditional brass beds have been around since the Victorian era. Brass is the combination of copper and zinc. Its best advantage lays in its strength, resistance to corrosion and formability. This makes it a material favoured for products with a long-life. It is also possible to melt down to recycle and reuse.

Our brass bedstead range from classic romantic French to elegant and curvy antique Victorian. These are suitable to country cottages or old victorian city builds. We also have some frames which have a more contemporary minimalistic style, which are suited to more modern homes.

Why are pure brass beds better than brass plated beds?

The Original Bed Co is proud of it’s skills that have been developed through generations of expertise to hand craft brass beds. Unlike other brass bed frames, ours headboard and footboard and made of pure brass tubes and pure brass castings. In this modern day it is rare to find pure brass among bed manufacturers, who have moved to using electroplated brass tubes rather than pure brass all the way through. This is the main reason our brass beds are more expensive than other beds which only have a brass finish. However, we do consider this an investment and a pure brass bed should keep it's value over time.

How to take care of your brass bed?

The tubes and castings are antiqued and then protected with a clear protective lacquer to prevent oxidation and deterioration of the frame and are maintainence free. Over time, the brass will tarnish naturally even with a protective coating but it should take more than a few years. Even if the lacquer wears away with age your brass bed can be cared for by using a metal polishing agents available in most hardware stores.

How to clean a lacquered brass bed?

Lacquer protects your brass bed frame from corroding over time, hence it is important to clean a lacquered brass bed with agents which won't strip away lacquer. We recommend cleaning your brass bed with a dry towel regularly. Avoid using any soaps but if there is a stubborn stain then a damp your towel with lightly soaped water is the recommended solution. It is important to clean a brass bed regularly as even oils and sweat can start removing the lacquer which will then start corroding your brass bed.

How to polish an antique brass bed?

For an unlacquered brass bed Brasso or any other metal polishing compound is the best way to remove tarnish and restore the shine to a brass bed. If there is a lot of tarnish then it can take a long time to get a sheen to your bed. In these cases using a non scratch scour pad to take away the bulk of the tarnish and then polishing with a metal polishing compound is the best way to bring a brass bed back to life.
