Pendant Rose and cornflowers Marie-Antoinette
This pendant was inspired by a detail of the headboard of Marie-Antoinette's bed.
The roses and lilies brought together with a garland of cornflowers were directly inspired by the quilt project. In 1786, when Marie-Antoinette wanted to renew her summer furniture, i.e. the fabric decorating her grand chamber, the Garde-Meuble called upon an embroiderer from Lyon, Jean-François Bony, to produce bed and chair embroideries to go with the new wall hangings.
