Historic Hand Embroidery




Amazing aren't they?

I have been doing some research on embroidery. I am fascinated with pieces that are related to the "order of the golden fleece." As I delve more into this subject I will update you on what I have found. But for now...enjoy this beautiful hand embroidery.

The cope was made between 1433 and 1442, designed by Robert Campin. Produced in the workshop of Thierry du Chastel, an embroider who originally came from Paris.

Can you imagine how many hours were spent creating these pieces?  The gold is real gold...

If you hadn't told us it was embroidery, I wouldn't have known! Gorgeous!
