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.
