Part 18: Interpretations

Variations of corded work interpretations, imitations and influence are witnessed throughout many regions in the 19th century. As this exhibition has shown, the textile objects worked in the broderie de Marseille technique that first were produced for export in Marseilles in the 17th century, were then imitated and adapted in form, use, technique and materials throughout the Mediterranean basin and Europe and her colonies. This section displays several examples of objects that mark those changes.
