Condition Report
In overall good condition, with light wear and halos traces.

The history of Aubusson textiles goes back to the 15th century. Aubusson is a town on the Creuse River in central France. It has been famed for its carpets as well as tapestries since the 15th century. Workshops were established there to manufacture pile carpets primarily for the nobility. Antique Aubusson rugs made in tapestry technique are among the most elegant and luxurious antique floor coverings.

During the 1950s, Aubusson tapestry knew an artistic revival under the influence of Jean Lurçat (1892-1966). Many of Aubussons of that period have graphic floral patterns and vines.
