To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I,W1LLIAM T.

This design consists in a novel shape for a bedstead; and is embodied in the annexed drawing which presents a perspective view of such bedstead.
The bedstead comprises the rectangular frame a with upright posts 5 at the front corners and similar posts I) at the rear corners. The front posts are connected by two crosspieces 0 and (1 both arranged above the frame and joined by the series of parallel rods e to form a grating at the head of the bedstead. The rear posts are connected by the crosspiece 0 above the frame a and the cross-piece d below the said frame; such cross pieces being connected together by the series of rods e which are bent outwardly adjacent to the frame a forming a recess at the foot of the bedstead at the level of the said frame.
The essential feature of the design is embodied in a bedstead comprising a rectangular frame, and the upright rear posts connected by a cross-piece above and another cross-piece below the said frame, such crosspieces being joined together by a series of upright rods each curved outwardly adjacent to the said frame.
Having thus set forth the nature of the design, what I claim herein is The design for a bedstead herein shown and described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
