Antique ItalianWoven Wall Hanging Tapestry Venice, Italy
Item Description: Up for auction is a stunning antique woven tapestry manufactured in Italy during the early 1900s. The tapestry is stamped on the back, "Made in Italy" and it features a wonderful variety of blended colors to depict an evening courting scene with Venetian gondolas and Italian buildings in the background. Overall the tapestry measures approximately 57" by 19 1/2" including the fringe on the sides.
Item Condition: The overall condition of the tapestry is excellent. It is extremely clean and t are no tears, stains, holes, or damaged areas to the material. The colors are still quite bright with minimal fading and I see no loose or missing fibers, with the exception of possibly a bit of fringe on the sides. The mark on the back is clear and can easily be read in the upper left hand corner and it has a slight musty smell from age. I have several other tapestries that came from this same estate, so please be sure to check out my other auctions for more great items!
