c.1880 Originally a 17th century hand woven silk, this pattern has a host of royal patrons. Depicted as the backdrop in the Baptism of Louis XIV, one of a series of tapestries designed by Le Brun and woven by the Goblanc factories in 1630, it was redrawn by G. F. Bodley as a damask in the Green Closet and in red for the Duke?s Dressing Room in Ham House in Richmond in 1890, and woven as a silk damask as a dressing room at Windsor Castle. The pattern was called Dysart, after the Earl of Dysart who commissioned the work at Ham. Very useful due to the non-directional tangle of lush foliage, it is as alluring as ever in silver pure silk.
