Antique Canopy Beds

Antique Canopy Beds date mostly from the second half of the 18th century to the very early 20th century. Tall wooden posts stand at each corner of the bed. Canopy beds support a cloth canopy, or tester, that covers the top of the bed. Many of the bed posts are handsomely carved in period styles. Additional carvings decorate the headboards and rails. Canopies, too, are often richly embroidered.  Antique Canopy Beds, also called four post beds or four poster beds, are available at antique dealers, auction houses, estate sales and dont forget eBay antique auctions.
