This old canopy wedding bed is stunning, with two tiers of intricately carved and gilded Chinese scenes to the front of the canopy. Each framed scene depicts ancient Chinese characters deeply carved in wood with great detail along the top and sides of the bed's entrance. Deep cinnabar red, with the carvings washed in antique gold, this bed is full of character, more like a complete room than just a bed. Hand painted Chinese characters appear all over the inside walls and the roof of the bed representing fertility and long life. The back wall has five secret drawers for storage and the inside of the bed is also finished in a rich cinnabar red. A truly magnificent and exceptional canopy bed. A custom made mattress can be made to fit this bed if required. Cushions and counterpanes may also be ordered in Chinese silk brocade to compliment the bed.
