It would have been hung above a bed to create a decorative centre piece from which to hang drapes. It has a decorative tubular, almost circular brass frame. In the centre of the front of the frame is a fabulous acanthus leaf crest. To either side of the crest is another acanthus leaf embellishment. The crest and embellishments are cast in lovely detail and the brass has taken on lovely subtle antique hue.
Within the decorative tubular frame is a wooden frame and it is to this that the drapes would be attached. Most of the wooden frame is covered in a thick cream cotton textile. The textile is pleated across the frame to form the canopy. The textile is in good antique condition with just one watermark (see photos).
There are 3 metal loops on the wooden frame. Two at the back to fix it to a wall and one on the front from which the ciel de lit can be supported by a chain. The ciel de lit is sturdy. It measures :- W 60 cm (23.5 inches) x D 54 cm (21 inches) x H 11.5 cm (4.5 inches). This is a divine bed canopy to add an authentic château chic finishing touch to a boudoir and another fabulous antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!Please scroll down for more photo's.
