Large Antique Architectural Wood Gilded Bed Crown, or ciel de lit, with original cream and gold paint. The crown or corona is meant to be mounted high on the wall over your bed, with luxury fabric draping down each side of your bed. Very heavy, this was hand carved in the early 1900's, such a stunning statement piece.
The demi-lune design features 5 decorative scrolls that support the curving wood pieces that meet at the top. The top is flat. On the back, there are two metal pieces with a place where the crown fits over screws in the wall. Antique drapery crowns like this are getting so rare to find. Wear, patina, and of course holes on the inside from decades of Scalamandre curtains.
