A French Renaissance Figural Tapestry Fragment. Late 16th / Early 17th Century. Depicting head and shoulder portrait of a man in profile dressed in traditional costume within a woodland setting.

Set in oval gilt mounts within an 18th century gilt wood frame enriched with a painted band of foliate scrolls. Very good antique condition for great age(400 years) and type. If there is restoration /re weaving it is very good as I cannot spot it.

Frame with some losses to gesso and minor restoration here and there. Old insect holes (insects of course long gone). A fragment salvaged many years ago from what must have been a truly magnificent huge wall hanging. Ready to hang in its new home or Museum. SIZE:- Frame is 23 inches high x 19 inches wide. An antique textile makes a sumptuous addition and a dramatic centrepiece to any room. The texture brings a depth to a room that a flat canvas (painting) rarely achieves. Or you can choose to invest in'the real thing' , a gen uine antique. Something to pass on to future generations , an investment that will increase in value o ver time.
