Description:

An English Baroque rustic tapestry from the second quarter of the 18th century, centrally woven, featuring a rustic scene in the manner of David Teniers II, in which several villagers make merry in front of a cottage that has a cat in one window and a monkey in another, while a woman holds a birdcage, a boy stands in courtier’s regalia, and an amorous couple sits on a bench.  Enclosed by a border of floral garlands, ribbon-tied fruit, lovers’ knots, rows of vases, and drinking vessels.  Wool with silk inlay.

Hanging: The tapestry comes ready for hanging, with linen backing and a strip of hook and loop tape at the top end, which can be connected to the opposite side of the supplied hook and loop tape, which could be tacked to your wall. For those who prefer the use of a tapestry rod, we can add the appropriate size loops to accommodate your needs. We now have a large selection of antique tapestry rods available as well, which we can provide detail upon request.
