Italian Renaissance embroidery and carpet-weaving, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Italian Renaissance embroidery and carpet-weaving, (1898). 'Fig 1: Embroidery on an ecclesiastical mantle in 'S. Croce at Florence'. Fig 2: Embroidered little velvet cover in the 'Museum vaterlandischer Altertumer' at Stuttgart. Fig 3: Embroidered velvet-border from a chasuble, ibid. Fig 4: Silk-embroidery in applique work from a chasuble, ibid. Fig 5: Relief-embroidery in gold upon silk from a chasuble, ibid. Figs 6 and 7: Silk-embroideries in applique work upon damask-ground. Fig 8: Carpet-border from a Venetian picture at Verona. Fig 9: Carpet-border from a picture by Paolo Giolfino in the museum, ibid. Fig 10: Carpet-border from a picture by Moroni in the Pinacothec at Munich. Embroidery, either applique or flat work, the latter frequently relief-like, took its motives [motifs] from the same sources as the hitherto treated branches of art, and it also united with the mere ornament proper images, especially in form of medallions. Carpet-weaving, inasmuch as it is not fancy-weaving, but applying geometric or vegetable designs, follows in the main features Byzantine and Oriental examples'. Plate 51 from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]
