This is a divine antique French tapestry tablecloth / throw dating from about 1900. It would look superb draped over a sofa or a table, or it could even be used as a rug on the floor.
It is of superb quality with good weight (over 2kg) and it drapes beautifully.
There is a central motif with a myriad of roses and a swirling acanthus leaf and fleur de lys design with further roses, to the corners and edges.
The colours of the throw are very antique and atmospheric. The background colours are olive green and dusky pink against which the red of the roses and the gold of the acanthus leaf swirls contrast perfectly.
The edge of the throw is trimmed with a fringed passementerie in a chocolate brown.
The throw is in good antique condition. There are one or two very minor marks but these blend in and do not draw the eye.
The throw measures :- 200 cm (6 ft 6.75 inches) long x 133 cm (4 ft 4.25 inches) wide not including the fringe. The fringe is 6 cm (2.3 inches) long.
A fantastic antique tapestry throw to add an authentic château chic statement to a room and another divine antique French textile find from La Belle Étoffe.
