Wonderful Aubusson tapestry panel. Showing two cherubs entwined with mythical serpentines and ornate foliage. The piece is surrounded by a velvet frame in a soft honey colour. This is a wonderful decorative textile antique.
Late 18th century, Aubusson, France.
Overall very good condition, the colours are bright and vivid. One or two small areas where the thread work is a little thin but no holes, rips or damage. There are signs of wear to the surrounding velvet, one small mark but again no rips or damage. The velvet surround is most probably Victorian. The panel itself has had a new backing added to it.
