Large woven tapestry, 57" x 54",which is about 4 1/2 ft square or 149 cm square. It was purchased in France about 40 years ago and is in mint condition. It is 100% cotton, no stains or other damages. There are light fold marks from storage, but these are not permanent. There is a fabric slot for hanging on a rod.
The tapestry is in warm colors of dark red, blue and green on a beige background. The fruit basket, rooster,bird and flower motifs give it a French country cottage feel. The border with birds and berries is reminiscent of William Morris.
The manufacturers tag is on the reverse: Tapisseries Des Flandres (Tapestries of Flanders). This French company is still in business, though this particular design is not available.
Tapestries were originally made to insulate the cold walls of castles, and this one will surely add warmth and personality to the right home!
