The Petit Trianon was the designated estate of Marie-Antoinette. She created a bucolic setting, full of charm and simplicity. This is an evocation of the fabric in the Queen’s bedchamber: rose bouquets and cornflowers on a white fabric. The original fabric was embroidered by Marie-Olivier Defarges, from Lyon. This marvellous cloth covers the famous wheat-ear furniture, created by Georges Jacob: the wood is sculpted and painted with wheat ears braided with honeysuckle and sprigs of jasmin, embellished with lily-of-the-valley and pine cones. After being dispersed during the Revolution, part of this unique furniture has since been acquired by the Palace of Versailles.
Here is a pattern chart to realize a large cushion with main motif and bordures of these charming fabric. This chart is taken from our spectacular pattern dedicated to Marie-Antoinette. The two embroideries depicting the Versailles Palace and Marie-Antoinette are the sixth in the Museums and Heritage collection.
This full-colour pattern chart is printed on two 60 x 28cm sheest with all necessary explanations. They are presented folded in a Sajou folder.
Size of motif: 347 stitches wide by 266 stitches high. When embroidered on 12 count (per cm) linen, the finished project measures 57.8 x 43cm.
