I have for sale here a fabulous tapestry wall hanging titled'The quest for the Unicorn'. The tapestry was bought as 4ft 3" x 3ft 5" - though I would say that this is actually an inch less on both dimensions in reality. More information can be found here. This was in my late Uncles possessions, rolled up with the pole - along with another still boxed - in a cupboard (see my other items). This has not been used & is as new, though there is a small dark mark on the lining to the reverse (measuring 1.5" x 3/4") I have checked it thoroughly & there is no fading, damage of any kind to the front panel.

No-one ever saw these up but, as it is unwrapped, I have to sell as'used'. The pole is of a heavy/cast metal & is 4ft 8 end to end & has never been used.

The legend to the top reads: "These are the arms of certain Knights of the round table bidden to seek the Unicorn on the quest whatever might befal". Please note that these are traditionally weaved on a loom & the finish means the tapestry is not perfectly square (see the above Hines website) so please do not think there is a fault, or the panel is stretched - it is inherent to the piece! You are welcome to collect from SS3.

I always do my best to list honestly & accurately & describe flaws where I see any. PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT MY OTHER AUCTIONS OF FINE SILVER & COLLECTIBLES.
