Author Andrew Sharp & Sons
Title Catalogue of Iron & Brass Bedsteads, Child's Cots, Bed Chairs, &c.
Imprint Glasgow: John F. Gourlie, Lith.
Date of Publication c. 1900
Language English
Notes This is a sumptuous trade catalogue with 53 lithographed plates, most of them partly printed in colour. Brass and wrought iron are much in evidence; no flat-pack self-assembly kits here. Judging by the size and solidity of the beds illustrated here, some are probably still around today. The Campbellfield Bedstead Works were built for Andrew Sharp in 1876, and were in Campbellfield Street in central Glasgow. This copy comes with three price lists dated 1901, one with manuscript corrections.
