Cheval Drape was woven in 1735 at the request of Philibert Orry who was the director general of the Bâtiments du Roi, or the King’s Buildings. This jacquard woven French impressionist wall tapestry décor celebrates the exquisite beauty of the original piece. It represents a fold horse and a camel in floral and exotic scenery. A traditional imagery that was popular in the Orientalism period. A lovely way to bring out the beauty of your surroundings.
