Turned Ribbon with Arched Canopy
A vigourously carved ribbon spirals up the reeded post. From a 1785 original design.
This bed has turned bed posts which have been finished with black lacquer and then gilded in a running design of fruits and flowers in 24ct gold leaf. The effect of the gilded work is particularly handsome and has a mellow, antique character. The bed is finished with a swagged pelmet with corner bells for a truly grand statement.
