A nice old wool tapestry depicting a Castle on a hill. The tapestry is hand made and features both Petit Point & Needlepoint. The Castle is Petit Point and I believe it is worked in silk, the rest is needlepoint. It looks circa 1920-1930s. The tapestry is BIG with overall dimensions of 44" long x 36 1/4" wide. It has a heavy rod sewn into the top to hang it up and a cotton backing. The Tapestry is in very good overall condition with no tears or losses to the wool. The colors are much more subtle and in tones of brown (not jewel tones), it has much softer Olde World colors in person and the designs do not pop out like it appears in the photos. There is some discoloration on the backing and variations in the color of the wool on the border of the front, this could simply be a variation in the dyeing process. The Tapestry would make a fine addition to a Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite, Gothic or Medieval inspired decor.
