Aubusson tapestry design, chickens, 18th/19th century
Rare original guache design for a tapestry, with central panel of rooster & hen. 18th/19th century
This design was used by the weavers at Aubusson, and part of the process of weaving required them to be cut into strips, like this one. The archives were sold off in the late 1990's in London.
