This handwoven tapestry is 126"h x 80"w, with applied white linen backing, also attached by a linen sleeve in back of the top to hang on a horizontal pole, currently a modern hollow brass one. The scene is medieval, focusing on a seated female attended by standing male on right and others. We have not identified it to any earlier source. The condition of the tapestry is very good with no separations. Note some color fading when comparing the front to the back as we have photographed under the liner. The condition is so good that the age of creation is questionable. We surmise that it is a 19th century production, perhaps recreating an antique original, and possibly woven in Scotland. The lower left corner of the image has characters which may be initials of the maker. So, this tapestry deserves further research. If you would like us to ship, we would need your address in order to quote you a packing/shipping/insurance charge.
