Hi,

At your convenience, please add a photo showing the head board for the bed frame. Only the foot board is showing.

Traveling currently.

I will be in my office this evening, so no rush.

I'm only feeling rushed because my 7-day membership expires today.

Hi,

Thank you for the image, I am in the office now.

This high back, 19th century, Victorian walnut bedframe with head board and footboard could sell for up to $800 on today's market.

You will now need to please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating.

I do see that we have some answered and unrated questions still - if you could also take a moment to rate them that would be very helpful.
