Wall Tapestry #10 Hungarian, C.1950
A vintage mid-20th century Hungarian handwoven textile.
The tapestry's lively scene depicts Hungarian birds amongst stylised leaves, tress and plants. The natural but punchy colours further add to the rhythm in the textile.
The ground of the piece is in a natural wool colour, woven into this are hues of blue, red, yellow, green, white, grey and black. Long cotton tassels hang along the bottom edge.
The wool is in excellent original condition. The naturally dyed fibers are still vibrant in colour and retain a sheen from the organic oily fats in the wool.
