A delightful 19th century French antique Ciel de Lit or bed canopy. Made from heavily embossed ormolu metal with a wooden frame, the top and bottom of the frame would have been covered with pleated silk to match your bed coverings - an upholsterer can easily do this for you. It attaches to the wall above your bed with brackets of your choice (not included). Lovely original patina, and motifs - a ribbon bow, torch and a quiver. The bed canopy is in excellent condition, with no damage. It is 14 inches deep and 17.3 inches wide. The last photograph shows how you might use an antique bed canopy like this one (the canopy in the photograph is not antique) over a bed, a day bed or even a bath! Beautiful.
