The bed is 81 inches long from outside post to outside post. 48 inches wide from outside post to outside post. Boxspring & mattress is 41.5 inches wide x 72.5 inches. Approx. 73.25 inches high is the headboard and approx. 57 inches is the footboard. Beautiful wood grain, especially the headboard & sideboard. The family believed this bed could have been made as early as the 1700s or early 1800s' To disassemble, then unscrew bolts from each bedpost using a special tool that goes with it. Personally, one of the most if ever beautiful beds I have ever seen.
