Pair of Tailleur Embroideries
France. 17th century
Silk velvet with silk appliqué with silk cord couching. These panels were most likely cushion covers, but may have served some other purpose. They are very fragile, and have been attached to a silk-covered foam core panel with adhesive. This panel is attached to a wooden frame, ready for a shadowbox. Each panel is 21½"x 21½." The mount is 28½"x 48½"
