Before the Tournament tapestry

French tapestry wall hanging

Before the Tournament tapestry is a highly stylized design by Jean-Paul Laurens (1838-1921) showing medieval knights preparing to joust at a tournament.  It was first woven at the Manufacture Royale des Gobelins for the Public Records Office. Today this French tapestry wall hanging is woven in an exceptional weave of 95% cotton. It is fully lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging – we supply instructions for hanging a tapestry with every order. Please note that this tapestry is non-returnable.
