Large neo-classical style over-bed canopy. Of curving form with a gently rising arched central pediment. Front with carved decoration consisting of a central cartouche flanked by floral garlands.

In excellent overall condition. Small losses to the gilding and signs of use appropriate to its age.

Structurally very good. Old curtain hooks along the interior.
