What does this mean?

Hi Patrick,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I don't see where a canopy would have been supported so calling this a tester bed is not wholly accurate.
If you'd like for your appraisal to include dimensions, which is customary, please forward in the comments section - at your convenience - the height, width and depth and I'll update this ASAP.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An American Renaissance Revival style carved walnut full bed
20th Century
With arched paneled headboard, and molded footboard and rails.
CONDITION: appears to be in good condition
