For interesting glass , pottery , oil paintings , lamps , dolls and more.... This one is something i really hate to part with....... I have owned this tapestry for about 30 years....... But you simply cannot keep everything........

The tapestry is all hand woven...... It is amazing and museum quality...

2 lovers in an embrace..... Parts of the entire painting have has glass beads woven into the tapestry tohighlight certain parts of the clothing...... In her hair and in his garment sleeve....

There is a mountain and trees in the background....... The art itself measures 17 1/2 inches across...... I do not know how much of the tapestry might be hidden under the frame..... I have never taken it apart...... The colors are bright and stunning..... This was never exposed to much sunlight..... The frame itself is also stunning and early , but i do not know if it dates as old as the tapestry or not......

I think it pre civil war now........... If someone can help me be more accurate....

I would surely be grateful to add their information to my description here...... I do not know why the numbers (71) appear stuck on the frame..... But i have never removed them...... The grapes are in relief in all four corners..... The grapes and vines are highlighted in gold gilding.........

There is some gesso loss as the pictures show...... Again , it never bothered me to leave it as i found it so many years ago....... There is an old cloth back on the frame.....

It sticks out past the wood.... Making the entire painting / tapestry some...

The wood measures 24 inches square...... Original finish on all of the wood...... I have always thought this was museum quality...... And i think it is flemish made...... It is a stunning piece of textile art....... I should mention that there is a picture of a spot in the blue sky...... To the left of the mans head... There is at least one picture showing it...... I think it is insignificant , but i mention it for accuracy.......

I hope someone will like this classic piece of art as much as i do..... Thank you for taking the time to search out this listing........
