US$1,500

About

18th century decorative Aubusson tapestry pillow depicting a basket with fruits and flowers framed with hunter green silk velvet, antique copper color metallic trim all around and rope trim at seams. In shades of green, copper, yellow, blue, red, orange and gold. Green silk backing. Handcrafted and designed in the USA with a hand-stitched closure (no zipper) and finished with a custom-made pillow insert. Size: 18 x 22 x 6 Note: Inset tapestry size: 12 x 16 The Aubusson tapestry manufacture of the 17th and 18th centuries managed to compete with the royal manufacture of Gobelins tapestry and the privileged position of Beauvais tapestry. Tapestry manufacture at Aubusson, in the upper valley of the Creuse in central France, may have developed from looms in isolated family workshops established by Flemings that are noted in documents from the 16th century. Typically, Aubusson tapestries depended on engravings as a design source or the full-scale cartoons from which the low-warp tapestry-weavers worked. As with Flemish and Parisian tapestries of the same time, figures were set against a conventional background of verdure, stylized foliage and vignettes of plants on which birds perch and from which issue glimpses of towers and towns.
