Around this glorious scene is a sewn border with a scrolled acanthus leaf design.
The colours are atmospheric greens, browns, and greys with highlights of blue and pink in the flowers, birds and water.
The tapestry is in good vintage condition. It is lined and has metal rings sewn on the back for hanging purposes.
