Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash Wedding Bed For Sale

It saddens me to see to see the belongings of greats being sold off when they die. Case in fact the ebony, hand-made Chinese wedding bed previously owned by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. I guess in the end, it’s all just stuff…

The upside is that after Barry Gibb (yes THAT Barry Gibb) purchased the Cashes’ Hendersonville lake home in 2006 he gave the bed to a friend as a wedding gift. The new owner of the bed moved it so that it wouldn’t be damaged by construction around to the 14,000-square-foot house. As a result of a mishap of that construction the house was destroyed by fire in 2007.

So the bed was saved and is up for sale. Call Rhee Martin (615-253-0119) if you’re interested.

    The bed is not ebony. It is camphor wood with a black lacquer. I sold the 2 Chinese beds to Frank Buster of Cuz’s antiques in Lebanon. June went in and bought 1 bed loved it & wanted another.
    This black bed was in our Brentwood home originally.Frank bought it & we had two other beds identical in this kingsize, but these had a gold finish. We still have this bed in our home. I also had a 2nd gold bed identical in every detail that I sold to Attorney Jim Omar & wife.
    Then 2 nd Chinese bed they bought was with a pagoda style roof , in black lacquer as well. This was a full-size
