Detail of hot water urn (left) and bed cornice (right).
Both have similar asymmetric curves and share the same motif of wheat husk pendants.  The claw feet of the urn are similar to those on the bed in terms of their compression.
Only four pieces survive from the Lloyd family silver service. John Cadwalader and Richard Bennett Lloyd are known to have shared a set of four large candelabra, each
capable of holding twelve candles and valued at £118 each.24 Had these survived closer parallels with the bed may have been seen.
The punched ground decoration seen on the bed carving may well have been inspired by the Lloyd family silver
service. A similar ground can be seen on the Lloyd / Cadwalader coffee pot.
