An 18th century European wool tapestry. Depicts an avian courting scene with two centered fighting male birds and female onlooker above. Subjects surrounded by green foliage and stone castles to the background.
As very finely done tapestry with all of the telltale signs of age and correctness appropriate for a work of the period. Note that the borders have not been reduced and the work retains strong color with no evidence of the original pigments having been augmented or altered. Mild staining on backing. JJW
