This beauty does have some scratches and the odd paint drip. It has only 4 slats and there are supposed to be 8 to support a mattress. This has not been used or tested.
Firstly, I don't know how old this is. It has the aura of victorian sliding into the 20th century with it's simpleness and "cartouche" on the headboard reminds me more of arts and crafts.
I don't know the woods but possibly mahogany. If anyone knows and can i dentify woods feel free to message me to set me straight.

It measures, inside measurement, 74 5/8" long ( a full size mattress is 75 inches long, I don't think 3/8" will be a problem in fitting a mattress in). The headboard is 69 1/2" tall and the footboard is 32" high. The outside width of the footboard is 49".

There are no cracks. The siderails fit nicely but ****I do think they will need to be extra secured to maintain a matttress such as a metal brace on the inside.

There is obvious unevenness in the finish. I do think it could use some 0000 steelwool and beeswax.
