Hinton House bed project: conserved inner valances installed

Three of the original silk damask inner valances were in good enough condition, such that with expert textile conservation, undertaken and supervised by Caroline Rendell, they could be re-united with the tester. Cleaning, consolidation of lifting fibres, infilling of losses, and netting have made these three valances presentable, and they have just been installed.
