B1460 - Divine Antique French Religious Banner, Wall Hanging, Mary, Joseph, Jesus - 19th Century
This is a divine antique French religious banner depicting the Holy Family and dating from the 19th C. It would have hung in a church and been carried during religious processions. It would now make a stunning decorative finishing touch to an interior. We have another similar one, B1461, which we have photographed with it and which is listed in our other items.
This one features a charming scene of the Holy Family printed on canvas in wonderful colour and detail.
Surrounding the scene is a metallic wire passementerie border with a fringe to the base. The top of the banner has 3 tabs and hangs on a metal pole with brass finials. The pole is hung by it's original green cord with tassels.
The reverse of the banner is lined with a fine cotton textile.
The banner and it's pole have survived the years in good antique condition. The canvas, passementerie and cord have a fabulous antique patina. The brass finials have dulled with the passage of time but could be polished if required. One of the tassels has come adrift from the cord and is now tied to it (please see photos).
The banner measures :- 86 cm (33.8 inches) high from the top of the tabs to the bottom of the fringe x 52 cm (20.5 inches) wide.
The pole measures :- 63 cm (24.75 inches) wide.
This is a gorgeous religious banner to add an authentic antique finishing touch to a room. It is from a carefully selected collection of divine antique French textiles & decorative pieces at 'La Belle Étoffe!
