cotton (textile), h 34.0cm × w 127.0cm More details

The technical virtuosity of this lambrequin – a draped decoration – is simply astonishing. It came from Twickel Castle near Delden (province of Overijssel) and may have served as a lampshade or the decoration the edge of a bed. The room in which the bed stood may have been decorated entirely in chintz as well. Chintz remained in use in the Netherlands, even at court, throughout the 18th century.

On display in room 0.9
