Salvage fragments from some massive and grand c.1700s Aubusson tapestry, these 18" x 12" panels, wool and silk yarns woven by the Master loom artists at Aubusson tapestry Manufactory have been made up with vintage passementerie and fabric to present as a gorgeous pair of sofa or throw pillows. Professionally sewn, the seamstress has used a more supportive fill than our usual down, making them excellent for back support. Decorator appeal, these typically sell quickly in our shop and with the calming neutral coloration of these (pale pastel green and pinks) I'm sure these will be gone in no time. Don't miss them. Full measurements noted on the photos.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, the tapestry fragments are 18th century French Aubusson, fine quality work, and a very nice compliment of lush fringed trim. I'm not positive, but It seems to me the backing is a raw silk fabric, nubby but not a velvet. The panels have small pulls to the weave at bottom of flowers, which I've tried to show in our photos - those have had light restoration (pale thread). The cover is not made with a zipper, but if you wanted to replace the pillow insert with luscious down insert, it appears you could easily unpick a side and then simply resew it closed after the exchange. You're buying the matching pair. Fringed passementerie is antique to vintage French and remains is beautiful condition throughout.
