Linenfold
Alternate name: Parchment panel

Ch鈚eau de Bourdeilles, France Gabriel's Gate, Buffalo

Architecture

A carved Gothic ornamental panel treatment made to resemble folded linen, probably originally after the folded napkin on the chalice in the Catholic ritual.


Originally a Flemish motif. It appears to be exclusively a North European motif, abundant in Gothic 14th-, 15th-, and 16th-century remains from Gothic France, the Netherlands, and the Teutonic countries. In England it survived another century along with the persistent Gothic quality, of the Tudor, Elizabethan, and Jacobean styles.

It is invariably executed in oak, in panels of seats, armoires, cupboards, chests, etc. It appears that a special molding plane with profiled knife was used for tooling out the long ridges.


Furniture

Used in armoires, cupboards, chests, etc.
