Trundle bed

Trundle bed
This trundle bed was made of pine and maple in 1800-1820. (Length: 56" Width: 41.875") A trundle bed sits low to the ground and can be stored under a larger bed during the daytime or when not in use. Many trundle beds have wheels so they can rolled with ease. The way the Stone daughters' bedchamber is set up, the two younger daughters would have slept on the trundle bed, while their older sisters shared the field bed. The accompanying video describes the bed and also how the bedroom would have been used by the Stone duaghters.
