Aubusson, Huge Vintage Tapestry, Famous Maker Robert Four Paris. A very large genuine Aubusson Tapestry with its provenance on the back. This one is entitled Scene Galante, in French, in English gallant Scene, it is a authentic copy of a much earlier Medieval - Tudor tapestry. XV being the 15th century.Huge, It measures approx 73 inches wide by 57 inches deep. It is marked on the back on a fabric label for authenticity and marked No 550 and signed. It looks as if this is one of a limited edition, albeit a large edition, printed on its edge are the numbers 2569 - 550, I suspect 2569 was the edition size and this one was the 550th one made. It will need a pole to hang it as I had to remove the existing one, due to it being too long to post. It still has its fabric attached to the top so one needs to just staple it over a long pole to hang it. Condition no damage but whilst it looks very clean it may be dusty only.
