Late 17th Century Beauvais Tapestry Fragment Woven in Silks & Wools
A late 17th, early 18th century Beauvais tapestry fragment that more than likely came from a border from a larger tapestry. Beauvais, a northern town in France, was established in 1664 and wove tapestries for the wealthy bourgeoisie and nobility of France, as well as for export. This fragment depicts a Grecian clad woman surrounded by a grotesque fountain mask, fish, mirrors and shell. Finely woven in silk and wool threads that still retain their bright color, lightly padded and framed in a newer gilt frame.
