Tapestry Description

The Pineapple Harvest

The Pineapple Harvest tapestry is from the The History of the Chinese Emperor tapestries series. It is also called La Recolte des Ananas and here we have a square version of the full tapestry (also available). We can see the Empress of China attended by a maid along with workers gathering pineapples near tall banana and pine trees. This series of oriental tapestries was originally woven at Beauvais between 1697 and 1705 in wool and silk. Each corner bears the arms of Louis-Alexandre de Bourbon, a son of Louis XIV. It hung first at Rambouillet Castle. Six of the ten tapestries survive, at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.

Today the Pineapple Harvest tapestry is woven in France in a high quality weave of 50% wool and 50% cotton giving both full depth and fine detailing. It is lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging. We enclose hanging suggestions with every order. As well as the square tapestry shown here we have several details available.

Though a little dark and amber-coloured, this dining room setting looks splendid:
