What is this?

Cravat end with many figures engaged in musical pursuits, including a woman playing the organetto or portative, a man playing the cello, a man playing the recorder or flute, and several men and women singing. Surrounded by foliage and rocaille decoration.

Why is this in our collection?

This lace cravat end celebrates the marriage of the Duke of Burgundy, the petit Dauphin, to Marie-Adélaïde of Savoy in 1697. Royal designer Jean Bérain’s influence is evident in the vertical arrangement of motifs. The Dukes of Anjou and Berry crouch beside the Duke of Burgundy, located in the center.

This is a cravat end from France. It is dated 1695–99 and we acquired it in 1962. Bequest of Richard Cranch Greenleaf in memory of his mother, Adeline Emma Greenleaf.
