Could you provide a picture of any of the metal parts used in the bed?
Could you inspect the bed and try to locate the manufacturer label or mark? If you can find it, could you also take a picture of it?
great! Could you attach them here?
Yes, I'm reviewing the pics
From he pics, I can see that you have a beutifully hand crafted bed. The curved wood is made of Veneer, while the wood with that pattern is Koa. Without a manufacturer mark, the best way to date the bed is using a picture of the metal parts. From the pictures you have just uploaded, I cannot see any metal part of the bed. Could you upload a picture of a metal part?
The metal parts of a furniture can tell us a lot of information regarding when it was manufacturer. Without the manufacturer label or mark, we cannot date who was the manufacturer or where. However, with the pictures provided I can date the furniture as being manufacturer in the 1900-1950 period. This is because all the screws are modern, they were manufacturer using machining process, and not hand forged or even cast.
Regarding the value of your item, I have just perform a market research of similar sold items as yours. I performed the research based upon the most recent finished auctions and private sells, so the value given is the real market value of your item. This is the only way to know the exact value of your unit.The value will be in the range of 900-1,400$.

I can give you only a part of the past autction sales results used. The reason is that I use a private database to see the results, this database is not open. Basically, I pay a monthly fee to gain access to this information. Any way, here is a part of the list of past auction sales used:
About the picture, as soon as you upload it, I can review it
