Description

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).
Tapestry weave in wool and silk, some repairs in keeping with age.
The border is contemporary hand woven galon.
