This fine wall tapestry, woven by Flemish Master weavers, depicts an elegant medieval lady surrounded by foliage and birds.
Two main factors determined a woman’s position in medieval society and her prospects: her rank - whether she was of noble descent, bourgeois or peasant, and her marital status - whether she was a maiden, a married woman or widow. Aristocratic women had two choices: wedlock - most women could be expected to be married by the age of 14 - or the nunnery. Both required dowries and involved land and wealth transactions.
The noble’s wife and the nun were both important within their own environment. The noble lady ran domestic household affairs, staff and provisions. She was also expected to manage estates, and even defend them if her husband was absent. Black Agnes, Countess of March defended Dunbar Castle against King Edward III in 1338.
Our tapestries are created with the greatest care in the finest materials. This tapestry therefore requires no other maintenance other than a dry-dusting with a soft brush. If required please dry clean only.
Fabrics by their nature are flexible; during storage, humidity & temperature may occasionally affect their shape & also cause creasing. To help a tapestry hang better we recommend using a dry iron on a cotton setting. Lightly iron the tapestry (on the face) from the centre towards the edges. In very extreme cases the tapestry can be stretched by pulling the panel gently by hand diagonally to re-shape.
Small tapestry rod recommended.
