Fine antique French Aubusson Tapestry Weave Textile.
Large panel hand woven in lovely gently faded pastel colors
Decorated with beautiful Old Fashioned Flowers a Church, sweet little Goats and pair of Birds
Most likely originally intended for a Settee cover but it looks to me as if it was never used for this purpose. Perhaps as a decorative rug or draped over a piece of furniture even displayed as a wall hanging. In my opinion this was intended for the back of the settee as it is a little smaller than the other panel (the seat) the pattern is a little more detailed..
Dating from 19th century Circa 1850.
Colors well preserved with a lovely antique 'time worn' look.
Normal signs of wear. Storage dust marks, some small stain spots . All commensurate with age and use
Overall a beautiful and very useful antique textile of good large size in sought after pastel floral colors.
Large impressive size. Panel measures 66" x 29.5" (167 cm x 75 cm)
PLEASE NOTE. I have a similar panel from the same Estate which I am listing separately.
