B824 - SOLD
This gorgeous vintage French tapestry wall hanging would add a fabulous château chic finishing touch to a room.
It depicts a beautiful and serene 18th Century country scene in which the characters are happy and relaxed and it is a joy to look at.
The setting is idyllic. A group of 2 young ladies and a young man sit upon a river bank surrounded by an abudance of trees, flowers and lush vegetation. Their pets and animals sit quietly and contentedly with them. The young man plays a musical instrument and you can almost hear the little bird in the cage tweeting in response.
The costumes of the characters are beautiful. The ladies have full skirts and laced bodices and the gentleman wears breeches and a full sleeved shirt to die for. See the little bows on their shoes.
The colours are very subtle. The scene is dominated with the very soft greens, browns and ochres of the vegetation against which the pink of the costumes contrasts beautifully.
Around the central pictoral panel is sewn a wide border with a gorgeous flower garland, and this finishes off the wall hanging perfectly.
On the back of the tapestry there is a wonderful heavy linen backing and there are metal fixtures to aid hanging on a wall.
The wall hanging is in excellent vintage condition and measures 135 cm (4 ft 5 inches) wide x 122.5 cm (4 ft 0.25 inches) high.
A fantastic vintage tapestry to add an authentic château chic statement to a room and another divine antique French textile find from La Belle Étoffe.
