eBay watch: Vintage 1960s Ercol bed and custom mattress

Ercol

If you check the website, Ercol still makes beds, but as far as we can see, nothing like this vintage 1960s Ercol bed that's on eBay right now.


It's a very distinctive midcentury design, not unlike the company's seating from the current range, which might make it easy to match up in a room. This is one of two up for auction by the same seller (auctioned separately), with the bed said to be dated from the 1960s and made from solid beech, but with recent rewebbing and a custom-made mattress with rounded ends to fits the bed (costing £120 on its own).

Length is 188cm, width is 91cm and condition is described as 'excellent' with 'some wear commensurate with age'. The current auction price right now, including the mattress is 99 pence.
