LOVELY ANTIQUE FRENCH CIEL DE LIT..CARVED WOOD BED CANOPY C1880

ANTIQUE FRENCH CIEL DE LIT BED CANOPY
This is a lovely antique French Ciel de Lit bed canopy made in carved wood with reeded decoration dating to
circa 1880. The wood is deeply reed ed and chun ky and very decorative.
The C iel de L it is just as I found it, still with it's original fabric which , as you can see, is now very distressed with the passage of time. I have left it in place as I thought it may give the potential buyer an idea of what it would have looked like, in case they wa nted to reproduce it.
All the wood has been treated for wo odworm as there are holes. I would like to stre ss that the frame is good and solid and it is not riddled with wo odworm or going to fall apart. There is no powdery woodworm dust. The shape of the Ciel de Lit is formed by joining pieces of wood together, the frame is joined in two parts and there is a gap at th is join. This is not loose and could be clamped back together by someone more competa nt than me if desire d.
This , with new fabric, would be an absolutely stunning addition to a vintage / period room.
Measurements: 62 cm (24 4/16") wide x 53 cm (20 3/4") from back edge to front of canopy
