Tapestry Description

The Departure of the Knights tapestry

San Graal tapestries

The Departure of the Knights tapestry is from the second Quest for the Holy Grail tapestries designed by Sir Edward Burne-Jones in 1890. They were woven by Morris & Co at Merton Abbey, with William Morris and John Henry Dearle also designing some elements. Originally called the San Graal tapestries, they are now on display at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

The tapestry is woven in France by Jules Pansu, in an top quality 95% cotton weave and it is lined, with a rod pocket for easy wall-hanging. This finely woven Burne-Jones tapestry is now available in three sizes. The background is a dark blue. The larger two sizes are non-returnable. The left (The Knights) and right (The Ladies of Camelot) halves are also available as separate tapestries.

Don and Mona in Los Angeles sent us this photo of the Departure of the Knights tapestry hanging over their living room window. It faces the tapestry of the Arming of the Knights they had purchased earlier. Don wrote “I should be jaded after receiving so many wonderful works of art from you, but I’m not.  Spectacular, beautiful, subtle, are some of the words that come to mind.  It will be a family heirloom, a treasure.  The quality of the weaving is superb, perfect.”
