The Renaissance Revival style was particularly strong in France through much of the nineteenth century. This furnishing textile displays a typical combination of Renaissance-inspired strapwork allied with unmistakably nineteenth-century floral designs. The naturalistically rendered flowers and leaves meander in and around the deep red strapwork support, which is accented with small jewel-like medallions.
