Item Delivered Separately

This item is sent directly from our supplier therefore will arrive separately from the rest of your order.

A delightful wall tapestry from an original hanging woven in the Basel region of Switzerland in 1465, reproduced with great care. This work of art can be hung in any room and will not only impress, but with this tapestry's intricate design you will always find something new to ponder over, for many years.

This tapestry depicts the meeting of two lovers in a flowery grove. In the Middle Ages more than at any other time, love was omnipresent. It was always love of woman which, together with knightly ideal of loyalty, stirred man's courage and made knighthood a form of life above all others.

Depicted in this tapestry, a nobleman accepts a gift of fruit from his lady. She is wearing an elaborate flowing dress; her headdress is adorned with jewels. The decorative qualities are enhanced by the innumerable sprays of foliage and plants of all kinds, which have been carefully woven. All are depicted with the simplicity & delicacy that distinguish the work of the master weaver.
