A 15th-century tapestry with a mysterious history….

 

The magnificent tapestry in the above illustration is the one indicated in my heading. It’s the oldest possessed by the National Trust, and after four years of careful cleaning and attention, it’s going on display at Montacute House in Somerset. It was commissioned by a French knight and created by a weaver in Tournai. Now we have it here in England.

The tapestry has a real air of mystery in its story, but I won’t explain more because this link takes you to an article that is all about it.

You can see it at Montacute House, Somerset, through October and November.
