The Queen's "Brocade" Purse (clip)

This purse is inspired by a brocaded lampas, decorated with flowers, ribbons and peacock feathers on a white background. It used to decorate Marie-Antoinette's bedroom in Versailles.

The room was restored to its original state on 6 October 1789 when the Queen left the Château for good.

The fabric, used for a set of summer furniture, was reconstituted according to the model woven in Lyons in 1786-1787, based on a design attributed to Jean François Bony.
