Original Jacquard Tapestry of Sir Edwin Henry Landseer's Bolton Abbey in Ye Olden Times 1908

This is a very important tapestry of Sir Edwin Landseer's painting " Bolton Abbey in Ye Olden Times".

The tapestry was done on the famous Hattersley Jacquard  Tapestry Loom at a Franco-British exhibition in 1908.

The Hattersley Loom was developed by George Hattersley and Sons, West Yorkshire, England.

The company started in  1784 and developed a number of innovative looms.

Artworks could be replicated by the use of the Hattersley Jacquard (Tapestry) Loom just like Sir Edwin Henry Landseer's painting.

Sir Edwin Henry Landseer(7 March 1802 -1 October 1873)was an English painter who's well know for his paintings of horses, dogs and stags.

 His best know artworks are the 4 lions in Trafalgar Square, London.

His works are in the Tate Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Kenwood House and the Wallace Collection in London.

Queen Victoria commissioned various works from the artist.

He made portraits of Victoria's babies, usually in the company of a dog.He also painted two portraits of Victoria and Albert dressed for a costume ball.

He painted a life size equestrian portrait of the Queen, shown at the Royal Academy in 1873.

He was so popular that his death on 1 October 1873 was widely marked in England: shops and houses lowered their blinds, flags flew at half mast,

his bronze lions at the base of Nelson's column were hung with wreaths, and large crowds lined the streets to watch his funeral cortege pass.

Landseer was buried in St Paul's Cathedral, London.

One of the tapestries made at the Franco-British exhibition can be seen at the Queen Street Mill Museum. The original bright colours are faded just like on this piece.

This tapestry got an excellent new frame decorated with faux veneer (walnut burr), black ripple moulding and a gilt slip along the inside.

The measurements are:109cm X 98 cm with its frame. The  framed authenticating document is 19.5cm X 28.5cm.

If you'd like to own a piece of well documented history this is your chance.

The tapestry comes with its authenticating explanatory document framed in a narrow oak frame!

Bid now, do not let it get away! There won't likely be another chance.
