Tapestry, wool and silk, Verdure, Flemish, c. 1675-1700. A landscape with tall elegant trees growing in the left foreground and a view through to a receding landscape to the centre right, with trees, a small church and distant hills. The tapestry is the remains of a larger piece. The distant view may have been framed by more trees on the right. There are no borders and the tapestry is lined with a natural hessian fabric which is turned over to the front of the tapestry giving the impression of a galloon.
Given to the National Trust with Snowshill Manor in 1951 by Charles Paget Wade.
