Antique 18th Century French Aubusson Rustic Tapestry of a Family Preparing Lunch

An antique French Aubusson rustic tapestry from the 18th century, size 7'8" H x 8'9" W. This lovely handwoven 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. Linen backing. A wonderful addition to your home decor, and a surefire conversation starter!
