TALL maple double rope bed...with canopy in original house

Customer Question

TALL maple double rope bed...with canopy in original house in late 1800s..carved posts, all pegs and bolts--we still use without not think we can keep in family much longer...does not look like anything I see on line---Worth???
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: posts are carved or ringed. ...still have the original horsehair mattress as a box spring (with plywood over it for support!)! Way too much trouble to take apart and try to move to an appraiser and no one in my area does appraisals
