A large silk panel with a romantic scene of two putti underneath a canopy with birds

19th century, probably French

The two putti flank an ornate vase with a lavish flower arrangement, on top the South-African flower ‘crown imperial’. The vase stands on a plinth supported by a large shell. The canopy embellished with tassels carrying three white birds, the middle one with its wings spread, holding a twig and flowers in its beak. The centre part surrounded by flowers, branches, leaves, and feather-like floral motifs embroidered in silk and metallic golden thread in green, yellow, pink, red, and blue. The embroidery of the flower hearts thickened to achieve a three-dimensional effect.

300x150 cm (exclusive band of fold over fabric).
