B1278 - SOLD
This is a stunning vintage French wall hanging. It has a 'tapestry' design after 'Les Vendanges' of the Cluny Museum in Paris, printed on linen. The original 'Les Vendanges' tapestry was completed in the first quarter of the 16th Century. This version certainly captures the essence of the original and would look superb whether hung in a country house home or a hyper modern apartment.
The design is incredibly detailed. It shows the stages of wine making, from the picking of the grapes to pressing and the first tasting of the wine - a process not differing too much today from this medieval scene. The scene takes place in a vineyard with a background of millefleurs. The atmosphere is very relaxed, with the nobility rubbing shoulders with the peasants.
The design is beautifully printed to capture the detail of the original tapestry. The colours are a stunning combination of reds, pinks, teals and ochres.
The wall hanging has a hessian lining, is nice and heavy and hangs perfectly. On the back are some metal fixtures for hanging purposes.
The front of the wall hanging is nice and crisp and in excellent vintage condition. The hessian lining has perished in places where the wall hanging appears to have been folded during storage (please see photos). This does not affect the appearance of the wall hanging or the way it hangs in any way.
The wall hanging measures :- 189 cm (6 ft 2 inches) wide x 100 cm (3 ft 3.5 inches ) high.
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.
