About

A Brussels mythological tapestry from the first half of the 17th century, woven by Peter van den Berghen, depicting an interior scene from the story of the Trojan War. In the center, Menelaus receives a cup from a woman who is holding a scepter, while several courtly figures look on, and a group of vessels are displayed on a shelf to the left. There are trees in the distance, Mene laus is inscribed on the man’s robe and Chire foar is inscribed on the woman’s robe. Enclosed within a floral border, with the town mark of Brussels BVB and the weaver’s monograms PVB in the outer lower guard border. Wool with silk inlay. Measures: 9’6” H x 11’0” W. Hanging: The tapestry comes ready for hanging, with linen backing and a strip of hook and loop tape at the top end, which can be connected to the opposite side of the supplied hook and loop tape, which could be tacked to your wall. For those who prefer the use of a tapestry rod, we can add the appropriate size loops to accommodate your needs.
