Silk-weaving, Germany, 18th and 19th centuries, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Silk-weaving, Germany, 18th and 19th centuries, (1898). 'Figs 1-7: Silk from Specimens in the Royal Museum at Stuttgart...The silk industry, which flourished in France as early as the 14th century received a further impetus in the 17th and still more in the 18th century by the fashion of covering the walls, and upholstering the furniture, with valuable silk fabrics. This fashion was also helpful to the still older German silk trade...Apart from traces of Chinese influence we have here the graceful swags and floral festoons, the vases, cornucopiae and torches, the charming and dainty lightness of which are so delightful in the style of Louis XVI, while in the frequent garlands, palms and shields we notice a foreshadowing of the style of the first Republic'. Plate 90 from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]

Gobelins weaving, France, 18th century, (1898). Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Gobelins weaving, France, 18th century, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Gobelins weaving, France, 18th century, (1898). 'Fig 1: Chair-seat by Louis Tessier, Louis XV [c1715-1774]. Fig 2: Basket of fruit by the same Artist, Louis XV. Fig 3: Garland of fruit by the same Artist (Louis XV.). Fig 4: Chair-Back by Jacques, Louis XVI [c1774-1792]. Fig 5: Doorpanel by this Artist, Louis XVI. Drawn by W. Vivien, Paris...It is no wonder, therefore, that in the ensuing period under Louis XV and XVI Artists such as Watteau, Boucher, Tessier, Jacques and others should have taken up the work, or that they were certain of a triumph in the pursuit of a special department of art. For instance, if we observe the tasteful manner in which Tessier, the king's-flower painter, could group his flowers and fruit in characteristic garlands, and bouquets, we shall not hesitate to reckon him one of the finest flower-painters of the French school. The details here represented, from important works by this master, give some idea of his marked ability'. Plate 82b from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]
