B746 - SOLD
This is a superb antique French tapestry wall hanging dating from the 1800's.
It is of good size and would make an impressive feature in a room.
It would have originally hung in a château and is made in silk and wool and is of superb quality.
It depicts a delightful 18th Century scene of ladies and gentlemen relaxing and enjoying themselves in the grounds of a fabulous château. They sit and chat and one lady works at her needlepoint.
They are all elegantly dressed. The men wear debonair coats and breeches. They have bows in their wigs, lace at their cuffs and and wear buckles on their shoes. The ladies are beautifully coiffed and wear gorgeous full skirted gowns.
The colours of the tapestry would always have been subtle and the passage of time has mellowed them further to a divine faded palette. Greens and neutrals dominate the scene with touches of pale pastels to the costumes.
The tapestry is in good antique condition. There are one or two minor marks (see pics) but these blend in to the scene and do not draw the eye.
The tapestry measures :- 186 cm (6 ft i inch) wide x 123 cm (4 ft) high.
A fantastic antique tapestry to add an authentic château chic statement to a room and another divine antique French textile find from La Belle Étoffe.
