Aubusson tapestry, verdure with coat of arms, 18th century.

- Wool and silk tapestry. This ancient weaving offers us a window onto a luxuriant natural world. The landscape is divided into several harmonious planes, the first of which features a meandering expanse of water, leading the viewer through a dense forest to a distant view of fortifications on high ground.

Animals enliven the composition: a cane followed by two ducklings and a bird perched in one of the trees on the right.

- This tapestry is enriched by an original foliage border, punctuated with flowers and decorated with moving scroll motifs at each corner. The special feature of this greenery is the original border with a coat-of-arms that extends beyond the frame into the central field, reinforcing the impression of relief. The coat of arms is composed of two oval shields set side by side and surmounted by a count's crown. The shield on the left features a chevron accompanied by three bezants, 2 in chief, 1 in base. The one on the right has a single motif, that of a closed tent (coat of arms as yet unidentified).

- Partially lined (all around), ring fastening system.

-In its current state, some restorations are to be noted, some relay seams are open.
