Tapestry, wool and silk with painted canvas addition, Landscape with Bird (fragment), possibly Oudenaarde, c. 1650-1675. A fragment of landscape with trees and a large bird resembling a crane in the foreground. There is a border on the left decorated with scrollwork, stylised dolphins and pairs of crossed shawms. On the right a section of painted canvas has been added, continuing the landscape and adding a border echoing the one on the left. The addition was made by Charles Paget Wade, who lived at Snowshill and who gave the house and collection to the National Trust.
Given to the National Trust with Snowshill Manor in 1951 by Charles Paget Wade (1883-1956).
