The bed dates from around 1785 and is hung in cotton dimity copied from an 18th century sample. By the end of the 18th century cotton fabrics were replacing wools and silks in fashionable houses. They had the advantage of being easily washable and were neat. The hanging are based on a design by Hepplewhite with gathered valances. With thanks to 'The Georgian House Museum', 7 Great George Street, Bristol, BS1 5RR.
