My medieval drawstring pouch

I want you all to see this beautiful pouch that I have bought. It's print on silk by They are very kind and provide good service. It is inspired by a medieval tapestry "the lady and the unicorn" from the 15th century.

There are six tapestries in the series and they are very beautiful. Here is the one that inspired the pouch:

The Baba shop I bought it from is not specialist in the medieval times but they do have other pouches from painters who, although they are not contemporary, have severel medieval motives with knights and maidens, like this one: 
It is Art Nouveau, which is obviously a much later art style, but you can't deny that it's pretty, and can you blame someone for finding their inspiration in the medieval times? ;-)
