Handwoven in France, circa 1970, each verdure wall piece has its original fruit and floral border and features tree motifs with birds perched on branches.

The tapestries flaunt a strong color palette including neutral green and beige earth tones. Two decorative 65″ carved rod with end finials are included for easy installation. Aubusson, a town on the river Creuse in central France, became a center of tapestry manufacturing in the 17th and 18th centuries during the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV. Aubusson became the source for the aristocracy, hence the typically monumental sizes of Aubusson rugs and tapestries. Employing a method known as “warping” and executed on a low horizontal loom, the weavers of Aubusson were able to create an illusion of depth in their works. Aubusson textiles are also usually identified by their stylized framing motifs and neoclassical themes. Measures: 57.5″W x 84″H.
