Please note in regard to mattress sizing. Beds that were made in the 19th and early 20th century in Europe were not made in standard sizes that fit today's modern mattress measurements. When you look at the interior measurements of the bed and compare that to modern mattress sizes it's usually possible to see which modern mattress is the best fit. Of course, it is also possible to order custom mattresses, some are very inexpensive depending on the material used. If the mattress is a bit too long for the bed people often times do not use the side rails. Rather they get a $50 metal bed frame for the mattress size they want. It sits on the floor and connects to the headboard and footboard. This is probably better since today's box spring and mattress can be quite heavy and the metal bed frame then supports the weight of the mattress instead of the bed itself.
