A canopy mattress is an ornamental mattress somewhat similar to a four-poster bed. A typical cover mattress normally options posts at every of the four corners extending four toes excessive or more above the mattress. Ornate or ornamental material is usually draped across the higher house between the posts and a strong swath of material may create a ceiling, or cover immediately over the bed.
A four-poster mattress is a mattress with four vertical columns, one in every corner, that support a tester, or higher (normally rectangular) panel. This tester or panel will typically have rails to allow curtains to be pulled across the bed. There are a variety of antique four-poster beds extant courting to the sixteenth century and earlier; many of these early beds are extremely ornate and are constituted of oak. An instance of such an early sixteenth-century four-poster resides in Crathes Fortress, which was made for the unique fort house owners within the Burnett of Leys family.
