Give me a day to gather myself and unload and I will start listing. This is the first of the treasures... This is a simply delicieux antique French bed canopy, ciel de lit or couronne from the mid to late 1800s.

I have left it just as I found it with the original drapes attached where it has been removed from a chateau setting. A stunning genuine period piece that is all original and so full of faded grandeur. I have left the drapes just as I found them but it would of course be possible to replace the textile as required. The canopy is walnut that is all good and strong. The front cartouche carries an extravagant acanthus leaf flourish that is all hand carved and beautifully detailed. There is a small curl missing but it does not detract in any way and is commensurate with age. I can find a couple of small old woodworm holes. The woodworm is long gone but I have treated them again just in case so that they would not spread any further at all. The timeworn curtains and swagged pelmet drape are heavyweight silk velvet, no holes but the odd area of missing pile with age and gentle blush fading.

The original bobble passementerie trim is all strongly in place with just the odd missing bobble. They are heavyweight and very dusty as is to be expected and would dry clean as required. The curtains are lined and very weighty. Extends forwards from the wall 20. Height at front (not including textile swags) 6.

Each curtain is 8 feet 8 long. Each curtain is 4 feet wide.

This ciel de lit would work with a single or double bed, a day bed or even over a free standing bath in any chateau inspired maison. Belle brocante and period confections full of faded grandeur from simply-chateau. Please not that colour resolution can vary from pc to pc so please check if you have any questions.
