Large Hand Painted Design for Textile Development: C19th
From 19th century France, a large hand painted design used as a template for woven textile development.
There’s a pencil drawn grid alongside small marker dot notations which would have been used by the weavers as a guide to colour and scale.
Onto a black background in a soft muted colour palette are tulips, daffodils and roses with foliage.
Would look great in most interior settings.
Some historic mends to reverse including a contemporary paper strip joining two halves of design together. There is also a patch repair to replace a missing part of the design. Some losses and tears to edges.
Measurements: 169.5cm L X 78cm
