Tapestry Description

Elysee Portiere statue tapestry

Pair of French tapestries

The Elysee Portiere statue tapestry is one of a pair of elegant portieres commissioned for the Elysee Palace by Empress Eugenie (wife of Napoleon III) and woven at Beauvais. The other matching tapestry features a tall bouquet. A portiere is a slim wallhanging over a door or flanking a doorway.

Today the Elysee Portieres are a pair of French tapestries, woven in 80% cotton and 20% viscose and lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging.
