Flemish Tapestry Fragment

Flemish Tapestry Fragment


201 x 51 cm


Beautiful Flemish tapestry fragment dating to about 1600.

A cartouche of a couple going for a stroll in the countryside, accompanied by a playing dog, forms the main part of the top half. Two buildings in the background, a bird and a number of trees complete the idyllic scene. The cartouche is topped by a decorative arrangement of flowers in a vase. The bottom half of the fragmentary panel is again a display of flowers in a vase and below it a human figure carrying a plant ( possibly a leek).

This panel is almost certainly from the same tapestry as the another fragment on this website, see

Tapestry weave in wool and silk, some repairs.

The border is hand woven contemporary galon.
