I have for sale this incredibly beautiful French ciel de lit, complete with it's original drapes and lining. This is such a rare find. It's all original and has not been converted from a light fitting like so many you see on the market today. The main frame is gilt brass with a stunning gilt bronze mount, superbly cast with great definition.
The metal is clean and bright, when it came to me the metalware had been painted, I had this professionally stripped, so now it is back to it's original state. The silver grey silk drapes are just it came to me, they have not been cleaned, so they are slightly soiled from the passage of time as to be seen in the photographs. Please see all the photographs, these show you all the detail and the condition which is commensurate with it's age. You will see there are two metal rings to attach the ciel de lit to the wall and on the top a ring the hold the front level.
The white voile is just for display and not part of this sale. The metal frame measures wide approx 16" by 14" or 41x35.5cms, the bronze mount protrudes from this frame, so it would stand off the wall maximum approx 16 or 41cms. The metal frame is approx 3.25 or 8.5cms. From the top of the frame to the bottom of the silk passementerie is 11 or 26cms.
