Large French 18th Century Beauvais Tapestry

DECORATOR SOURCE
An impressive 18th century Beauvais tapestry after Jean Baptiste Oudry (1686-1755) depicting 'La Main Chaude' (a Game of Hot Cockles). The figures in a wooded landscape beside a stream and stone folly, an open landscape with chateau visible in the distance, a shepherdess and her flock on the opposite bank, within a magnificent frame style border with bold acanthus decoration, with some minor historical repairs.

*Condition: Colours remain bold and bright overall, with the exception of some fading. There is also a faint water tide mark to the sky above the distant landscape. Backed in neutral linen - there are two areas of water/damp damage with one large hole to this linen, but the tapestry in front does not appear affected. Some small, well executed stitched repairs and small patches. Small split to very edge border at top left corner and a few smaller worn splits/holes to very top edge.
