Dimensions: Approx. 36cm high by 45cm wide.
Background: I have collected French hand stitched/needlepoint finished tapestries for many years, there is such a wonderful tradition of stitching these fabulous and detailed works here. I make sure to purchase only the best works as there are many that fall short with stitching too tight, irregular, incomplete or colours chosen badly and that is before considering their overall condition which can be faded, stained, torn or with holes. My works were purchased with a view to making wall hangings, cushions/pillows and other furnishings it is clear now that I have many more than I will be able to make up and so I will be listing some on Etsy as it is time to share! If you are looking for a subject in particular you are welcome to contact me as there is a high probability that I will be able to find a suitable tapestry for you in my extensive collection, many others shown at fleursusannah.com which I can list on Etsy for you to purchase on request.
