Working through loads of needlework and old woven Aubusson, Flemish, Verdure, Gobelin tapestry fragments and salvages which I once thought I'd make up into those lush fringed and down-filled decorator pillows we used to sell. I've collected these for decades while out buying antiques - just the best and most appealing panels, but it's time to disburse and let you make them up for your home or business.

This one is French, 1700s, is 17" x 15" as shown, and would have been a  loomed Aubusson tapestry upholstery for a chair back and part of a large set of furniture to match. The backs always fare better over time, and this one has a fabulous fox in a landscape with stream. It is complete with a passementerie trim and all it needs is to be sewn onto a larger panel of velvet or silk fabric, a back panel made and sewn with some fringe around or tassels at corners - a down-filled pillow insert and someone to sew up the one side and it's a pillow. Panels like these are slow work, this one must have taken a year to complete, each tiny stitch woven from bobbins of yarn. Wool and silk yarns used. A large panel to work with. No odors, clean and charming. Very good condition throughout, age and type considered.
