Vintage Over Bed Hospital Table






This is one of my favorite finds, a 1940`s - 1950`s over bed wooden hospital table. It`s solid wood, four and a half feet long with a vanity mirror that is concealed (folds down) in the table top and inside shelf for your makeup or whatever. It raises and lowers with a crank on either end and it rolls on castors. There is a table exactly like this in the Susan Hayward movie "I Want To live". This baby is still on our porch till cleaning day.

Till Later,
Cathy

  2. I`m going to refinish it and repaint that little space under the mirror. looks like it used to be white enamel.

    Don`t know where I`ll put it yet.

  3. This brought back memories! I am old enough to remember tables like this in use at the city hospital I worked for! It was a very useful table except patients often forgot to take home vanity items they stored in it!

  4. I own a very similar over bed table, from around the same time period. I'm curious if you have any idea of it's value? I can't seem to find anything on the internet about it.

  8. I have one very similar to this. No mirror but top opens and adjusts with a metal hinge. Can’t seem to find any info about it.
