Description / Expertise
Painted cloths were fashionable wall-hangings in the 17th century as they much cheaper than tapestries and woven textiles. Very few survive from this period and there was a revival of interest and popularity in them in the late 19th and early 20th century. This charming hanging exudes character and the essence of Folk Art.

This massive hanging depicts a naive stencilled design with two repeats of a lady, sitting beside a duck pond, and holding a fish on a rod with a house and garden in the background.

It is stretched over a frame which it could easily removed from for transport and the frame could be dismantled and reassembled on site.
