About this item

Materials: wool, silk

Beautiful antique French Gobelin tapestry. Handwoven with wool and silk in France circa the mid-18th century in a workshop in Paris or Verdun. The design shows a Mediterranean Garden Scene with a building in the center, surrounded by palm trees. Around the centre scene some oak trees with birds and leaves complete the motive. It was woven in the so-called slit weave technique, showing the weft threads of each color are wound back from the color boundary, leaving a slit between the changes of colored threats.

The Tapestry is about 250 years old, signs of age are visible. The Tapestry has some old restorations and is mounted on a textile band with mounting rings to hang it on the wall. Due to the aged materials, this beautiful piece of textile art should be handled with care.
