W150xH300mm, China

The traditional Chinese beds are almost like rooms on their own; there is an entrance through a gate at the front, the sides and the back are filled with wood carving panels or balustrade, even the roof are paneled.  Unlike the western bed where the user can get on from 2 sides and the end if they so want to, the chinese bed can only be entranced from one side.  If a couple were on the bed, the one sleeping inside will have to squeeze pass from the foot of the other person to get out of bed by the gate.  The gate is covered by a curtain which is drawn open in the day time and close at night.  This is the metal hook for holding apart the curtain over the bed, they come in a pair.
