Good Antique Condition Commensurate with Age – Cut outs for chair arms; minor moth damage to scene – Late 1600's
This magnificent 17th C. French silk tapestry chair panel with needlepoint border once graced a French chair back.

A maiden sits beneath a large tree between a cherub holding a basket of flowers and an angel with peacock wings. This tapestry scene is bordered by needlepoint patterns of c-scroll acanthus leaves and florets.
Suitable for a host or hostess chair back, this magnificent 17th C. tapestry and needlepoint chair panel will be a collector's piece.
