A companion piece to our “Portiere I”, this tapestry is equally lovely. It’s really hard to believe that at one time these pieces were used to simply block a draft in a doorway or a window, since large castles and chateaus didn’t have the luxury of insulation at the time. This particular tapestry would look great with its companion, which has a complementary palette of colors. Woven in the directoire style, this type of work was very popular during the Transition period once King Louis XVI ended his reign. “Portiere II” is based on murals commissioned by Princesse De Polignac for her palace. This tapestry is simple yet sophisticated enough to look great in any room of your home. It comes lined at the back and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
