Italian Valance ~ 16th century ~ Silk velvet with padded appliqué of silver tissue embroidered in colored silks and couched metal thread ~ V & A Museum ~ Richly embroidered bed hangings were often the most expensive part of the furnishing of a camera. In Venice beds were commonly fitted inside alcoves, with curtains to conceal the wooden structure and hide the bed during the day. This striking bed valance would have hung high on the bed frame under the canopy.
