The red feathered hat
This tapestry represents Louis XIV’s visit to the Gobelins' manufacture. The king is easily recognisable by his red feathered hat.
Here we can see people carrying the silverware created for Louis XIV by the goldsmiths of Les Gobelins and the Louvre.
This richly decorated vase may be the great dragon vase, delivered by the goldsmith Alexis Loir in 1683.
Duke of Orleans
Louis XIV is standing next to his brother Philippe, Duke of Orleans. But who is that peeking through?
