French Tapestry Throw Pillow | Royal Picnic
3 in stock
This handmade designer throw pillow is made from a beautiful French Tapestry in earthy vivid tones of peach, shades of olive, mauve, light blue, pink and a smidgen of ivory. The overall tone of the tapestry leans towards green. Although I am by no means an expert on the official age of any given vintage textile, I have become familiar with approximations based on craftsmanship, wear and coloring. The stitches vary in size, but are still small and close together. Additional indication of age; the scene is vivid on both sides depicting a Royal Picnic. Circa 1870 -1900 The backing is constructed from a beautiful bright olive green toned raw silk that ties together nicely with the overall tone of the tapestry.
French tapestry is woven on a vertical loom. Tapestry is weft-faced weaving, in which all the warp threads are hidden in the completed work, unlike cloth weaving where both the warp and the weft threads may be visible. In tapestry weaving, weft yarns are typically discontinuous; the artisan interlaces each colored weft, back and forth in its own small pattern area. Weft threads of different colors are worked over smaller portions of the warp to form the design.
There is a difference between quality tapestry and not, which in layman’s terms, is most apparent in how tightly woven the piece is.
There are 3 within this set, and they would all play well together.
