An outstanding early 17th century Brussels 'Pergola' Tapestry. 

Hand tapestry woven in wools and silks depicting two flower-filled vases in a columned pergola with vine-decorated classical columns and hunting scenes beyond, within a bead-and-reel border with fruiting floral garlands decorated to the sides with classical terms and centred to top and bottom with cabochon-filled cartouches flanked by putti and parrots. The colourings in this wonderful tapestry are truly exquisite.

Weaver's mark on the right side of border.
