Description

Ornamental plate, jewelry box or valet tray, wall decor. Italian Venetian glass, with a remarkable degree of transparency, brilliance and strength. Hand made decor. The image refers to the canopy of Charles VII. 1422-1461.

An extraordinary 15th century tapestry, discovered in September 2008 in a private residence, the tapestry was purchased by the Louvre Museum for a total amount of 5.6 million euros. It is an important piece for the history of art, which no one suspected existed before September 2008. It is in fact a work that appeared on that date in a private residence, considered by its former owners to date back to the 19th century. Promptly informed by the antiquarian who had unearthed it, the curators of the Louvre then discovered what is undoubtedly the only royal canopy still preserved, which is in a state of exceptional freshness. A canopy is "a wooden or hanging work fixed on a frame, placed as a sign of honor above the high altar of a church, a throne, to mark the place of a great person. On a vermilion red background it shines a great golden sun surrounded by a multitude of stars, two great angels in flight hold a crown of precious stones crowned with lilies: everything indicates that this tapestry was woven for a king of France. The stylistic and historical study leads to the conclusion that It is about Charles VII. Furthermore, the golden sun surrounded by small suns on a red background is the emblem of Charles VII "the Victorious". The work is of breathtaking beauty. The author probably Jacob de Littemont, grand master of origin Flemish in the 15th century, official painter of Charles VII.

Every great work of art has two faces, one for its time and one for the future, for eternity. Art is what the world will become, not what the world is. When a work of art seems ahead of its time, it is true that time is behind the work. Elegant, unique and refined, the objects of Pulchra Imago are the expression of the eternity of the beauty of art, whatever era it belongs to. A walk through history, on the trail of manual skills and aesthetics over time. Pulchra Imago means “Beautiful Image” in Latin, the language of our origins and which spans millennia. The charm of the past, art and history are translated by Cristina Casali into trays, valet trays, ornamental plates, crystal paperweights that can be inserted into any furnishing context. Pulchra imago respects the authorship of the works, applying the original image in high definition under glass, in a sort of permanent crystallization, testifying to the immortality of contemporary art. After a long process the work is finished in gold, silver or copper leaf. The selection of prints is also declined on natural textiles, linen, hemp, cotton. Particular attention goes to the recovery of dusty linens, sheets and tablecloths forgotten in the family trunks. We invite our customers to give them new life, personalizing them with our proposals, to create cushions, runners, placemats ... different furnishing accessories, which smell of home and past affections. An archive of over 100,000 artistic images full of details, monograms, symbolisms will guarantee a choice absolutely designed for a meaningful and classy object, for oneself or for a non-trivial and valuable gift.
