These sheets are specially made for antique beds that have an oddly sized mattress, 48”x75”. However, many of the three-quarter beds are no longer in production. Most of the bigger companies consider them obsolete in the furniture market. But, you can still find these beds and their sheets available online from other smaller companies. You just have to know where to look.

Or, they can be used in the master bedroom to add flare and style. Whatever the reason, you’re looking into getting an antique bed, now you need a mattress and tasteful, three-quarter bed sheets to match. 

Most antique beds will not be sold with the original mattress. You have to think, no one wants a very old bed that comes with a very old mattress. I know I wouldn’t want that.
