Note: These bed hangings were intended as curtains for the state bed in a grand house and are rare survivors of late 17th century English needlecraft. The design of these fantastic landscapes was influenced by Indian embroidery imported by the East India Company into Europe and reflects the fashion for the exotic from the east at the time. A set of bed hangings of identical design is in the collection of Lord Walpole at Mannington Hall, Norfolk, and another pair of hangings, formerly at Leeds Castle, Kent, is illustrated in ‘Mallett Millennium’. Related crewelwork panels are also in the collections of ‘The Victoria and Albert Museum’ in London and ‘The Metropolitan Museum’ in New York.
