Beautiful rare Caernarfon tapestry.


Wow!

This 1920s` Caernarfon tapestry bares the signature hall marks of  Penmachno Mill. But in a colour way I have not seen before. Coal Black ground with a glowing firework set of colours: Apricot, Sapphire Blue, Crimson. Revesable traditional Caernarfon design with more Colour on one side than the other.


This splendid bed cover was woven C1920 using a fine , high twist 2 ply yarn.Batch dyed yarns with subtle ranges of gradual colour across the blocks. Hand spun & woven with an integral border design. In a laborious process which necessitated the changing of pattern chains for each finished bed cover. The warp end yarns being pushed between the two layers by hand & then machine sewn to finish. Marvelous!


Bright colours, In superb condition. Little Dye bleed & a couple of minor darns.


A highly collectable Welsh textile in superb condition, suitable for regular , respectful use.


Pure wool. DRY CLEAN ONLY.


Measures 90" x 72" ( 230cm x 184cm)
