Gobelin (plural Gobelins)

  1. A mainly French and Flemish type of tapestry having richly coloured pictorial designs.
    • 1908, W. B. M. Ferguson, Zollenstein, Ch.IV:
      So this was my future home, I thought! [] Backed by towering hills, the but faintly discernible purple line of the French boundary off to the southwest, a sky of palest Gobelin flecked with fat, fleecy little clouds, it in truth looked a dear little city; the city of one's dreams.
