The tassel tie-backs are lovely, too. What a find, Genie!
Oh my! Genie, what a treasure trove ~ those chairs in the front left are gorgeous, and that little stool so sweet. ~Dianne~
Bonjour dear friend!wow adorable, just adorable and I agree with Dianne, that chair is also gorgeous!A nice Tuesday!Léia :)
love the shapes and patterns!
Oh my goodness! How incredible!JaneFlora Doora
A woven feast for the eyes (and I can just imagine the tactile feast!) Gorgeous -- I love the muted colors. I think I could put that fireplace screen in my living room!!
I missed this place. How fabulous!
Tapestry is not a lost art! Those are wonderful. But I'm not sure you could use as many as they did in draughty old castles.A la prochaine.
That really is a find! Just gorgeous, and I love the way they're displayed. Wish my place was big enough for something like that big ol' high-backed chair!Thanks for sharing, Genie!
I like this kind of tapestries only when they are old an these look fantastic! Great find, Genie.
Ah you've found a treasure trove. I need to shop for a coupe of carpets right now ...
If you like tapestries, you'll love the Cluny.
Oooooh! Can you hear me squealing from there? I adore this whole vignette. I could spend days and days wandering the markets...
Shell -- Oh, I almost missed seeing those! This is one of those photos in which I keep discovering little treats.Dianne -- I would feel like a queen with that little stool.Leia -- Merci, and I think that the details on the hand crafted chair tapestries are divine.Dave -- Merci!Jane -- Oh la la!Marie -- I'll call ahead and have them put it aside.... Let's go get it!Virginia -- We'll go the next time in Paris....Alexa -- That high-backed chair is just wonderful but I think it might look quite big in a "regular-sized" room.Bear -- So glad to hear that the art is alive. I cannot imagine how long it would take to craft those tapestries. I have done needlepoint before (and petitpoint) and it is quite tedious!JM -- I think that the old ones have a very stylish look, probably passed down for a generation or two.Loree -- Oh yes, these would be very fine carpets!Starman -- I will have to look into that. Tell me more....Parisian -- I do love the markets! I am usually so meticulous about documenting my photos (location, etc) but I am not sure that I could find my way back to this place.
I would have a hard time deciding on what to purchase. They are all so lovely.
