Perfect for creating a stunning wall grouping, this set of four tapestry cartoons were used to guide the weavers and sucre d'herb artisans in their hand painted creation of tapestries for the export trade. Representing various floral crests, each is a work of art unto itself, representing truly classic design that remains timeless. Because they were not considered the desired final product, most were discarded after production of the tapestries was discontinued, so finding four such wonderfully preserved specimens was a delight, indeed!
Circa 1880s.
Each measures 28 x 34.5.
