Grandes Armoiries

Detailed Image
Grandes Armoiries 
This exceptionally grand piece Grandes Armories tapestry was originally woven by the Gobelins manufactory in the 18th century in France. Designed by Pierre Josse Perrot, the original Gobelins tapestry was produced to announce the reign of Louis XV who came to reign as a five year old in the year 1715. The 3 fleurs de lis symbols in the azure blue cartouche represent the arms of France below the golden crown. The sceptre, armory and swords and elaborate ornaments is symbolic of the king's power and reign. The extreme intricacy and richness of detail in this tapestry from the cloak behind the cartouche to the acanthus foliage and regal armor makes this tapestry one of the most impressive in French tradition. There were over 20 versions of this tapestry made over a period of 15 years and one of these adorns the door of a chamber at Versailles, and are also used by French ambassadors to decorate their embassies. This impressive coat of arms tapestry will make a magnificent impression in any room or home. This "Grandes Armories" tapestry is backed with lining and a tunnel for ease of hanging. Note: tapestry rod, tassels, and accessories, where pictured, are not included in the price.

After only 2 weeks, my beautiful tapestry arrived! It is perfect, I just love it, and have had so many favourable comments from family and friends.

I am hooked, ...and currently am awaiting delivery of my 2nd order."


Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!
