Medieval Jousting Knights Cushion Cover
This Museum Collection gobelin cushion cover shows a Jousting Knight. Jousting is a martial game or hastilude between two horsemen each wielding a lance with a blunted tip, often as part of a tournament. The primary aim is to strike the opponent with the jousting sticks while riding towards him at high speed, if possible breaking the lance on the opponent's shield or jousting armour, or unhorsing him.
This cushion is woven in Belgium on a jacquard loom with 100% chenille cotton thread. It is lined with a beige velvet backing and closes with a zipper. The gobelin quality is obtained by a denser, thicker weft and as such is somewhat heavier than the regular tapestry quality.
Size is 45x45 cms (18'x18').
Please note that this offer does not include the inner.
