Tapestry Description

October Lucas Months tapestry

October Lucas Months tapestry is a lesser-known wallhanging showing the grapes harvest. The Months of Lucas tapestry series is nonetheless a highly respected series, designed by Bernard van Orley or Lucas van Leyden. First woven in about 1535 in Brussels they were later copied in 1688 by the Gobelins tapestry workshops. Louis XIV owned the Lucas Months tapestries, and now a set is owned by the Metropolitan Museum in New York. A copy of this October month is at the castle at Pau in the south of France.

This medieval tapestry is woven in France today in 97% cotton and 3% polyester. It is lined, with a rod pocket for easy wall-hanging. Please note that the larger size is non-returnable.
