The real thing
I never thought I would own a genuine piece of Westacre, but this wonderful four poster bed turned up on my favourite Dutch online marketplace recently. It is all original - the bedding is tacked on with large stitches and not pinned like the other examples I've seen on this site. The rest of the stitching is incredibly tiny and neat, it reminds me of the mice's work in "The Tailor of Gloucester". The china dog is another one euro flea market bargain, he is stamped "Made in Germany". The cushion he is lying on was obviously sewn by a child and came with the Westacre bed - but it is most certainly not Westacre!

FABULOUS - a very lucky find indeed and in great original condition too! I bet it was one of those heart-racing moments when you can?t press the buy button fast enough and then do a little dance around the room when you have!!

YESSS!
