An antique French Aubusson rustic tapestry from the 18th century, size 7'8"H x 8'9"W.  This lovely hand-woven wall-hanging depicts a charming rustic scene of a family working together to prepare a meal, with the father putting the food in the oven, the children adding wood to the pyre and fanning the flames, and the mother setting the table.  The scene unfolds in a verdant hilltop setting, with a villagescape in the background.  Enclosed within a "trompe l'oeil" ("fool the eye") picture frame type border, comprised of circle motifs and latticework.  Composed of fine wool, with silk highlights.  In excellent condition for its age.
