Brocade Fleur de Lis, Dark Blue and Gold, DEFECTS, 0,5m

Reference : 103-01-0029

Replica of historical brocade with the famous fleur-de-lis pattern.

Our reproduction is based primarily on the preserved original Sicilian brocade from the 13th century. The fabric is decorated with heraldic pattern of lily - a symbol of purity. This motif was abundant on textiles through the Middle Ages up to the baroque. During the reign of Louis VI. the heraldic motif of lily called "fleur-de-lis" was used as a royal symbol of France, but later on it was shown on many other heraldic symbols of cities (New Orleans to name one). It was typically a golden pattern on a dark blue background.

The original extant textile dated to the 13th century which we followed is deposited at the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

In our Pinterest Gallery we dedicated a separate board to the fleur-de-lis pattern.
