Object Description

Dating from the mid 19th Century this beautiful open design antique Aubusson carpet is in very good condition.  An exquisite large Aubusson with a wonderful musical theme throughout the design which would indicate that it was possibly commissioned for use in a large music room. Each corner has a different musical instrument within the cartouche, and the medallion features a multitude of instruments.  Woven using delicate colours which have faded beautifully over the last 170 years.

There is one area of repair which we have highlighted in the last picture, the repair has been completed to a very high standard and does not detract from the overall beauty and rarity of this Aubusson tapestry carpet.
