Splendid antique European wool tambour embroidered on velvet long panel, dating to the late 18th century or at least the early 19th century in a hybrid Jacobean/Baroque style. Lavish and exuberant design elements featuring, fruits, foliage and florals in narrow width with a 49″ long repeat. Masterful shading of the vegetal dye wool yarns accented with gold metallic threads, all done on a burgundy silk velvet that has been professionally mounted on aubergine colored light weight linen. A rich and elegant antique textile in overall very good antique condition, with splits to the ground velvet through-out these have been addressed by loosely tacking to the linen to stabilize.
Measures 102″ by 18″.
