Tapestry Description

Lake and Terrace wall tapestry

– Villa d’Este tapestries

The Lake and Terrace wall tapestry shows a late 18th century lakeside scene at Lake Como, Cernobbio in northern Italy.

The classical terrace and peaceful gardens are those of the Villa d’Este estate, now a luxury hotel. The villa was built in the 16th century for the Cardinal of Como and in the late 18th century the Italianate gardens were created, the scene of our Italian tapestries. These were described by Caroline of Brunswick as “a scene of complete enchantment”.

This wall tapestry is woven in Italy in 75% cotton and 25% viscose. Like all our Villa d’Este tapestries, it is hand-finished – lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging. Please note that the 47″x77″ size shows slightly more of the scene on the right, with more of the temple buildings.

The small size is on sale only whilst over-stocked – reduced from US$250 to US$219.
