The Falconer wall tapestry
The Falconer wall tapestry is an interesting early 16th century mille fleurs tapestry showing a nobleman hunting with a falcon. His servant with the dog is probably a falconer. It is one of the La tenture de la Vie Seigneuriale tapestries (Scenes from Lordly Life) woven in Brussels in about 1520. These six tapestries are now hanging at the Musée National du Moyen Âge (Cluny Museum) in Paris.
Today the tapestry is woven in Belgium in 83% cotton, 11% mercurise and 6% polyester. It is lined and has a rod pocket for easy wall-hanging. We supply instructions about how to hang tapestries with each order.
Here is this tapestry from the Scenes of a Lordly Life series at the Cluny Museum, hanging in a home in Brisbane, Queensland:
