This Needlework Tapestry was found as a chair seat in an antique dealers shop in 1999. We reproduced the colors worn after 200+ years of use - as the original colors ( seen on the back side ) were a bright chartreuse - red - etc. Both color combinations ( seen below ) are avaliable as Needlepoint Kits for Chair Seats.

The tapestry design is also available as canvases only - for you to decide the colors you prefer - especially for the background.

A magnificent design - we date from the Empire style era - the rule of Napoleon I - the First French Empire - when it was intended to idealize Napoleon's leadership. Napoleon I visited French textile - porcelain - and furniture workshops to encourage their increased production for the greater glory of France. More about the Empire Style is found on the Met Website.

The finished designs will make spectacular firescreens as well as chair seats or pillows.
