Oh, the color palette! Splendid pair of panels dating to 17th century, early woven tapestry salvages from border panels of a huge wall tapestry. I'm uncertain if Aubusson or French, or Flemish tapestry. These are restored, ready to make up into spectacular decorator throw pillows. As you can see, each of these 2 rectangles consist of panels which as noted, are salvaged border strips (see rust-colored edging. Each one perfectly compliments the other. One a single panel, and the other is nicely jointed in center. You need only decide which color heavy silk or velvet to back them with, and how lush you wish to go with your fringe, passementerie, or corner tassels. All of the top decorator magazines are showing pillows and wall hangings of these tapestries, Aubusson, Gobelin, Flemish, etc., even in the most modern interiors. I have collected the finest panels for 30+ years, always sure I'd have time to make them all up into fabulous pillows, and find I am short of time, so here you go. Full measurements noted on the photos. 

Very good to excellent condition for age and type. Spun and dyed wool yarns, strong warp, beautifully preserved and whatever small restorations needed have been already don't. No unpleasant odors. Just stunningly beautiful and important ancient works of loom weaver's art. No evidence of fading (see colors on backsides) which also means the tapestries they were taken from were not hung in direct sunshine, also a sign they are stronger, survive in great supple and usable condition.
