Millefleur tapestries, literally meaning "a thousand flowers", were largely woven between 1400 and 1550 and have always been considered a rare category of late medieval hangings. The present highly decorative panel probably included fantastic beasts and further exotic flora.
Compare similar flora and fauna in two weavings in the Musée du Cluny, La Tapisserie Médiévale, Paris, 2002, pp. 188 and 189.
