A French Renaissance Figural Tapestry Fragment.
Late 16th / Early 17th Century.
Woven in wools.
Depicting head and shoulder portrait of a man in profile dressed in traditional costume within a woodland setting
Set in oval gilt mounts within an 18th century gilt wood frame enriched with a painted band of foliate scrolls.
Very good antique condition for great age(400 years) and type.
If there is restoration /re weaving it is very good as I cannot spot it.
Frame with some losses to gesso and minor restoration here and there. Old insect holes (insects of course long gone)
A fragment salvaged many years ago from what must have been a truly magnificent huge wall hanging.
Ready to hang in its new home or Museum.
SIZE:- Frame is 23 inches high x 19 inches wide. (58.5cm x 48cm)
I do have another tapestry from the same Estate which I am selling separately
An antique textile makes a sumptuous addition and a dramatic centrepiece to any room. The texture brings a depth to a room that a flat canvas (painting) rarely achieves.
