"The Garden of the Trianon" is a repeating design of a small Classical style temple surrounded by flowers and foliage, printed in 6 brilliant colors on silk "Pussy Willow," a popular fabrication by American silk manufacturer H.R. Mallinson & Co. The design is from the second La Victoire series, produced by Mallinson in conjunction with the Peace Conference that followed the signing of the Armistice that ended the fighting in World War I. The gardens of the Trianon Palace, within the Versailles estate, must have provided welcome relief from the treaty negotiations for the delegates to the Peace Conference in 1919. The Grand Trianon Palace would also be the site of the signing of the Treaty of Trianon in June 1920, the formal ending of hostilities between the Allies and the newly formed nation of Hungary.
