Hereby presenting an excerpt from the Popular Dictionary of Architecture and the Allied Arts, Volume 3 (1882) by William James Audsley and George Ashdown Audsley. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page, which was illustrated by the authors.
“BROCAT or BROCADE – A rich silk stuff, woven with ornamental patterns, thrown up with gold and silver threads; or a gold or silver tissue ornamented with floral, conventional, or other devices in coloured silks, in imitation of embroidery or needlework…. In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries several of the foreign looms were celebrated for their textile fabrics, among which brocades, or stuffs of a similar nature, held a prominent position.”
