Welcome to the chateau......brimming with divine shabby chic vintage French treasures
MAGNIFICENT ANTIQUE FRENCH BOUDOIR BED CANOPY CIEL DE LIT c1900 FADED GRANDEUR
Please scroll down for more pictures.
This beautiful antique French ciel de lit bed canopy is full of faded grandeur and would be perfect for any chateau chic boudoir. It dates from the early 1900s.
I have also seen them placed over a bath to carry shower drapes with stunning effect too.
This canopy would work well with a single or double bed and is in good strong condition for use.
The outer frame is a rich warm old gold that is perfectly vintage.
The frame has a classical scrolled patterned border and the front is simply stunning!! A laurel garland oval frame topped with a divine ribbon bow garland. the frame holds what looks like a Wedgewood classical panel in pale blue and cream. I cannot see the markings on the back of the plaque as it is encased in the framing.
Below the framed cartouche are decadent laurel leaf swags and tails.
The inner wooden frame is still good and strong and there are the remains of the lase used fabric on the ceiling panel. The wood carries various holes and nails from its previous fittings but is all still solid.
This ciel de lit measures:
Width max 41" (104cms)
Depth at front swags ( from top bow to bottom swag) 8.5" (22cms)
Depth of rail alone 2.5" (6.5cms)
Extends forwards from the wall 13.75" (35cms)
An amazing boudoir embellishment full of chateau grandeur.
It is a heavyweight piece of superb quality....postage options below.
