Tapestry Description

The Promenade tapestry

Cluny Museum wall tapestries

The Promenade tapestry is a fine mille fleurs tapestry from a series of six called La tenture de la Vie Seigneuriale. These “Scenes from Lordly Life” tapestries were woven in Brussels in about 1520. This one shows five beautifully dressed people in front of the mille fleurs (thousand flowers) dense background of such flowers as marigolds, daisies, speedwell, hyacinths, periwinkles, violets, pansies and Solomon’s seals.

It is one of our favourite medieval tapestries so we were delighted to see it at the wonderful Cluny Museum in Paris. Today it is woven in Belgium in 89% cotton and 11% polyester and is lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging. Please note that these large size tapestries are non-returnable. You can also enjoy vertical details which have just one lady in the Promenade wall tapestry or with the two ladies on the left side.
