Tapestry Description

Elysee Portiere bouquet tapestry

Pair of portiere tapestries

The Elysee Portiere bouquet tapestry is one of a pair of portiere tapestries commissioned for the Elysee Palace by Empress Eugenie (wife of Napoleon III) and woven at Beauvais. It matches another tapestry featuring a statue. (A portiere is a wall hanging over a door or, more often, beside an elegant doorway.)

Today this pair of matching tapestries are woven in France in 80% cotton and 20% viscose. They are lined with a rod pocket for easy hanging – we provide tapestry hanging information with each order.
