thank you Liza, that is correct. The top is not original.

I would say yes and partly yes. The chair is definitely right, and part of the bed but the superstructure isn't. It is a commercially made punched metal, which I am 99.9% sure they never used. The beds usually had ends, too.

Thank you Rebecca I have seen it & chatted in person with Elizabeth. As you can imagine I was very excited with this discovery!

See the article Ladies Guild Furniture by Elizabeth Jackson in Issue 8 (Feb 2011) p3 of the magazine.

I forgot to add when I put this pic here that the top of the bed is a later addition. I constructed it many years ago as the bed came without the top. It is lovely to learn so much about them as I had no idea of their origin.

I think they very probably are Ladies Guild pieces, Lizzie - thanks for showing them! The chair almost certainly is, and the lower part of the bed frame looks like it's constructed the same way. The top part looks less blobby - but perhaps some bits were flatter, or it could possibly be a replacement, I don't know. Nice to see some more examples!
