Woven Tapestry style patch depicting a scene of a woman knitting sitting next to a farmer. They are positioned next to a path on one side, a stream on the other with a cottage and church in the background. The woman wears wooden shoes and the man is barefoot. The location looks like the French country side, judging by the cut-off trees in the background (the tops having been previously harvested for firewood!) and her shoes and apron.
Patch is frayed around all edges and has a black border around the scene. You can see the different colors of weft yarns on the back and the piece has MADE IN FRANCE woven into the top corner, but it only shows on the back of the piece.
Piece is tightly woven and designed by a skillful hand. Is probably machine woven. Could be slightly soiled as I see a spot above the church that looks like soiling, but I don't know it's history. I would have it professionally dry-cleaned.
Would make a lovely pillow center, a patch on the back of a jacket, on a knitting tote bag, framed on the wall or anywhere that you can use a bit of fiber art. Embroider it, bead it, quilt it....be creative!
Use them as inspiration--Perhaps you can concoct a story based on these 2 mysterious characters? What are they doing? Why are they there? What has just happened or about to happen?
Piece is about 9" x 9" square, without the fringed edges. Not exactly straight sides but that is to be expected.
