45" X 35.5" / Brown

A Victorian textile treasure.  This tapestry might have been used as a throw blanket as it has a double backing, a wall hanging or covered a couch.  It is a fabulous period c1890-1900 piece. It measures 45" X 35 1/2". There is a wide 6" velvet border in a mocha brown color. The tapestry and velvet is in beautiful condition for it's age. No rips, tears, stains or odors to the front of the piece. We see minimal fading. The tapestry is doubled backed with the outer layer fabric having a bit of a sheen to it (the sheen does not show in the photos). There is a stain on the outer backing which does not go through to second layer of backing which is a heavier linen type of fabric (see photos) nor does the stain go through to the front of the tapestry. There is no odor to the stain and it does not show from the front. You can see that this piece was hand stitched together, all layers without the use of a machine. It is a gorgeous piece for Victorian, rustic, country or primitive decor. It is rare to find Victorian era textiles in this condition. This would also make a wonderful gift for the horse lover.
