Description

73014 Antique French Aubusson Silk Tapestry with Rococo Style, Savonnerie Wall Hanging. Dating from the 1860s, this is one of the most magnificent pieces of antique French Aubusson silk tapestry. The production of rugs and tapestries in Aubusson ended circa 1870 and the 200-year time span is what attracts rug enthusiasts. It has been used as a wall display piece. The top center features a beautiful rose garland couronne crown. There are long ties on each side of the tapestry entwined with foliage that swag right and left them drop down to tassel ends. A large central cartouche is filled with beautiful roses overflowing from a basket. The base design of foliage and roses are intricately stitched. The wear as to be expected is to the silk backing of the design but all of the hand-worked applique is in amazingly strong condition. The historic worth far exceeds any damage that comes with centuries of wear. In any event, it is simply amazing. If you adore timeworn treasure, this tapestry is a divine find. Suitable for Old World, Rococo, Renaissance, French Provincial, French Country, Baroque, Louis XIV, Palladian, Cottage, English, English Country, Queen Anne, Tudor, Shabby Chic, Rustic, Georgian, Romantic, Modern, Colonial, and Traditional. With its commitment to tradition and heart full of whimsy, this Renaissance wall hanging can enliven nearly any opulent period-interior with color and vitality.

Whether in a formal setting with elaborate furnishings or in an Ottoman style interior, this garden verdure tapestry will bring vibrant life where it is displayed. European Wall Tapestry.
