Antique 17th Century lge tapestry fragments Probably Flemish. For renovation

I have a refund policy. Please read the details at the foot of this page.

English speakers only please.

Here in the Period Home Department you can delight in antiquesto enhance your dwelling. From the fabulous to the humble, atouch of the past to enjoy!

So, the story behind this large tapestry is that I bought a group of textiles from the attic of a grand country home, and this was amongst them.

I thought I knew what it was immediately, but didn't dare to sell it without confirmation, so I sent some images to a top London Museum with a textile department.

Based on the images, and not examined by hand, they confirmed that this was probably a 17th Century tapestry, and based on the tree's and village in the background, very likely to be Flemish as this was common to Flemish work.

If whole and in good conditon, these tapestries have sold for £10,000 plus in recent times!

This is neither whole, or in good condition SO PLEASE READ AND STUDY THE PHOTOS WITH CARE!

Personally, I find it so compelling that I would say it could be immediately framed just as it is, with all the faults. It is the type of image that would look fabulous in an all white empty room, certainly dramatic enough!

But it has suffered greatly.

As you can see, the main piece has a male face to one side. The second piece has his hand[s] and foot, but there is nothing to connect them. I think that second piece could only be used to support renovation of the main piece.

The tapestry has broken in strips of approx 2-3" horizontally in many places. Some areas have escaped, but not many.

I would say that some of the repair work to re-join these strips is good and certainly not easy to see if you are a non-expert like me. There are many more still to be done. The lower half, including the town, is far better than the upper part.

Look at the back and it is clear that a loose woven canvas was added to the back, on which some of the repair work could be done. This was probably in the Victorian era. But this canvas is also worn and torn, due to age.

Some of the repairs are very sound and you will need very storng linen thread to continue. Some are 'tacking stitches' and would need to be done properly.

Finally, the gentleman has an unfortunate repair to the centre of one of his eyes. So some detail has been lost forever. And there is a whole chunk missing from the top, which might be repaired with strips from the second piece. Or not.

The main piece measures approx 36" x 27". The second piece is approx 23" x 19".

This is large andweighs 1200gto ship. It will have to be gently folded so it can travel by normal shipping methods. Please ask if you want shipping prices for outside the UK but best to work this out when we see if it sells for pennies or pounds!

Please do take a look in my shop if you have the time!

Payment within5 days please. Sorry, no cheques. Paypal only from overseas. Paypal or uncrossed postal order from the UK. No collections for small items.
