Legendary figurines by Les Etains du Graal - Perceval with chair
Piece from the round table set by Les étain du graal.
Perceval is one of the knights of the round table featuring in the earliest known legends of the round table. According to earlier versions, he has quite an important role.
Aftter the death of his father, King Pellinor, and his four brothers, all knights, his mother took him to live in the middle of a forest, in order to keep him safe from the world and prevent him becoming a knight.
This, we hear, lasted until his 15th year, when Perceval met 5 knights in shining armour which he presumed to be angels. And that was it, Perceval wanted to be a knight. He entered the service of King Arthur proving himself valliantly in combat.
He was knighted and joined the other knights of the round table.
Perceval is the only one with his companions Galahad (son of Lancelot) and Bohort to enter the castle of the grail and en their quest in this way.
Here, sir Perceval extends his sword respectfully towards the middle of the table.
One more superb presentation of Perceval by les Etains du graal.
The first thing we notice about this replica is its stoutness. With a head rather round, a large moustache makes him quite engaging.
His armour and helmet perfectly made and what more can be said for his sheath and belt with his splendid tunic. I love this replica.
The knights' chairs are remarkable in the extent of their simplicity. This is what gives them such charm.
A reinforced pin under one foot allows the piece to be firmly connected to its allotted place at the round table.
