Description

Our handsome ornament borrows its stately decoration from a South Netherlandish tapestry (ca. 1488–1501) at The Met Cloisters. This grand textile bears the motto of the Order of the Garter, the oldest and senior-most order of chivalry in Britain; as such, it was probably made to commemorate the English naval commander and treasurer John, Lord Dynham's knighthood in 1487. The two stags represent Hartland, Lord Dynham's family seat, while the repeating topcastles—fighting tops found on medieval ships—honor his naval service.
