B936 - SOLD
This is a charming vintage French tapestry wall hanging dating from the mid 1900's. It would add a fabulous château chic finishing touch to a room and make a fantastic bed head.
It depicts an idyllic 18th C country scene. A group of young people and their animals are enjoying a relaxing time. They are surrounded by a profusion of trees, lush vegetation and flowers including hydrangeas and roses. In the background is a lake and a château.
The boys are playing musical instruments to which a couple dance. They all wear beautiful costumes and look very happy.
The colours of the tapestry are very subtle. The pinks and blues of the flowers, water and costumes stand out perfectly against the ochres and soft greens of the setting.
The tapestry is made of wool and linen and is in good vintage condition. There are one or two very minor marks (see photos). The tapestry is hemmed along the bottom and the two sides but the top remains free to attach it to a pole or batten.
It measures :- 150 cm (4ft 11inches) wide x 74 cm (2ft 5 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.
