This is a superb vintage French wall hanging. It has a medieval tapestry design printed on linen. It is entitled 'La Fontaine' and is a representation of the central section of one of the Unicorn Tapestries kept in the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
To the centre a magnificent unicorn kneels before a white fountain and purifies the water with it's magic horn. A pair of pheasants and greenfinches perch on the edge of the fountain and all around is a plethora of vegetation amongst which other animals rest. See the lions, the dogs and of course the little rabbit.
The colours are subtle neutrals and dark greens with red and gold highlights. The printing is of excellent quality with high definition and detail.
The wall hanging has a cotton lining and on the back are 3 metal rings for hanging purposes. It is in very good vintage condition.
It measures :- 84 cm (2 ft 9 inches) high x 67.5 cm (2 ft 2.5 inches) wide.
A fantastic wall hanging to add an authentic château chic statement to a room and another divine vintage French textile find from La Belle Étoffe.
N.B. We have displayed the wall hanging using clips and these are not included.
