A huge wall or bed hanging printed in France by Braquenie in the first half to mid 20th century.
This hanging is a version of an Indian chintz which was strongly influenced by the engraved ornament of French court designer Jean Bérain 1638-1711, chief designer to the court of Louis XIV, the Sun King. His elaborate architectural and decorative designs were highly influential.
The bold architectural strap work design of this hanging decorated with floral garlands, draped cloth, split leaf shapes, vases of flowers and perching birds.

In very good condition with some historic mending and some light discolouration, which it may be possible to remove with specialist cleaning.
