At the top are two large carved panels depicting flower heads on sunken matted ground, with three larger sunflower carved panels in the middle, and four smaller floral carved panels below.

The roof also boasts a detailed carved canopy, which incorporates formal strap work arabesque rails defined by a sunken matted ground, interspersed by shaped corbels, with two further large carved corbels at the corners of the canopy. Please note, the half tester roof must be attached to the wall for additional support (we can provide brackets).
