Rare 17th C. French Scenic Silk Tapestry with Needlepoint Border Chair Back Panel

 This magnificent 17th C. French silk tapestry chair panel with needlepoint border once graced a French chair back.  The central scene depicts a garden setting with a body of cypress lined water and chateaux in the background.  A maiden sits beneath a large tree between a cherub holding a basket of flowers and an angel with peacock wings. This tapestry scene is bordered by needlepoint patterns of c-scroll acanthus leaves and florets.

Suitable for a host or hostess chair back, this magnificent 17th C. tapestry and needlepoint chair panel will be a collector’s piece. Of course, an excellent use for this fragment, would be to convert it to a tapestry pillow with velvet backing.

CONDITION: Good Antique Condition Commensurate with  Age – Cut outs for chair arms; minor moth damage to scene. See photos. Late 1600’s
