Carriage Cushion Cover (Vases of Flowers with People)

dove-tail tapestry

47 x 97 cm

The weavers of dove-tail tapestries from Scania adhered to specific designs and ornaments, following local traditions. This cover, made for a wedding carriage, is identical in the placement of ornaments to the two small covers SW 80, differing only in the minor detailing.
