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

This magnificent 17th century French tapestry chair back panel with needlepoint border has most likely outlived the original wooden frame it was made for.  The central scene depicts a garden setting with a body of water, a large medici urn, and maybe some chateaux in the distant background.  A maiden sits beneath a large tree between a cherub holding a basket of flowers and an angel with peacock wings. This scene is bordered by needlepoint patterns of c-scroll acanthus leaves and florets.  The cut outs on the sides of the panel fit over the arms of the chair.

Suitable for a host or hostess arm chair back panel this magnificent antique tapestry and needlepoint armchair back panel will be a collector’s piece.

CONDITION: Good antique condition commensurate with age: Cut outs for chair arms, minor openings and with some restoration. Please inspect photos.
