Robinsons of Ilkey Folding Campaign Day Bed
Mahogany portable campaign day bed with three caned sections that adjust their angle on a ratchet allowing you to to have a flat bed or to raise the back and legs to a variety of comfortable positions, supported on turned legs ending with porcelain and brass casters. There is a removable bar at the foot to stop cushions from sliding off. It is a very versatile piece of furniture that can be used as a relaxing couch in your den, at camp, at the seaside or on your porch or patio. The back is stamped with logo of “Robinson & Sons of Ilkley” (Yorkshire). There is also a very faded label that is illegible. Robinson took out a patent for this couch March 9, 1878.
The custom made three-part cushion is upholstered in a heavy wool Mackenzie Modern Scottish Tartan plaid. The Mackenzie tartan is the regimental tartan of the Seaforth Highlanders, which were raised by Mackenzie, Earl of Seaforth in 1778. Most clan tartans today were developed since the military Highland Independent Companies introduced the idea of using the pattern for identity between 1725 and 1739.
