ENGLISH & FRENCH ANTIQUE TEXTILES

   

A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THE FAMOUS " L'OFFRANDE A L'AMOURE" TOILE. FRENCH ca.1785

This interesting toile is by the Jouy manufactory in Jouy near Versailles. It is is one of the many designs by Christoph Oberkampf.

Illustrated are many different scenes - dancing children animals, people and a lot of foliage and trees. It is in a nice shade of madder red on cream. The backing is of cream linen and it is quilted. It has light batting.

The condition overall is very good. There is some sun fading to one corner, but the piece is strong and without any damage.

Measurements: 34" x 32"

Price: SOLD
