A Rare Flemish Baroque Allegorical Tapestry Woven in Brussels using wools and silks Depicting Cherubs with Game Birds in a Classical architectural setting With later fabric backing. Extremely decorative panel from a much larger tapestry Having a lovely time worn, faded grandeur appeal which can only be achieved over centuries of use Not too larger size so perfect for hanging behind a sofa, table or bed The tapestry is four hundred years old and of course shows appropriate signs of wear commensurate with great age and use.Centuries old historical wear, mainly to left hand side which probably had more exposure to daylight Please study photographs as they do form a very important part of the description. Use zoom feature for close up viewing Please read below what to expect in regards to condition of a genuine 17th century tapestry SIZE 74.5 inches wide x 60 inches high (189cm x 152cm) On a genuine 17th century tapestry we would of course expect to see evidence confirming its 440 years of use, such as loose missing threads, areas of general wear, perhaps areas of re weaving / restoration, lines of separation within the weaving, sometimes areas of sun fading and brittle threads.
