The Marie-Antoinette tapestry wall hanging is:

  • Made at Adorabella in Australia.
  • Fully jacquard tapestry woven from cotton thread. The woven design creates a higher quality image that is superior to printed versions.
  • Fully lined with a coordinating cotton fabric.
  • Includes a "channel" sewn into the top of the tapestry to allow for the tapestry rod to be easily inserted for hanging. 
  • Includes a continuous aluminium weight stabilization bar* sewn into the bottom of the tapestry (that helps minimize distortion of the tapestry when hung).

Tapestry wall hanging is reproduced from the original painting (circa 1783) of Marie Antoinette (1755-1793) by Louise Elisabeth Le Brun.

Marie Antoinette was an Archduchess of Austria and in 1770 at 44 years of age married King Louis XVI of France at the Palace of Versailles. Marie Antoinette became unpopular due to her lavish lifestyle at a time when the French people were undergoing hardship and hunger. Marie Antoinette lost the trust of the French people, a distrust inpart because of her Austrian heritage and she became the subject of gossip and scandel. The Diamond Necklace Affair (1780-81) sealed her fate where she was impliacted in a crime to defraud the crown jewellers of the cost of an expensive diamond necklace - in today's money approx $US 14 Million.

In 1793 following the French Revolution Marie-Antoinette was convicted of high treason by the Revolutionary Tribunal and sentenced to execution by the guillotine.

Care & Cleaning: This wall hanging is made with the highest quality of materials and as the design is fully jacquard woven (not printed), and is therefore completely dry-cleanable. The tapestry can be ironed, steam-cleaned, spot-cleaned and "scotch-guarded" if required.
