The notes on the back are connected to someone trying to research the tapestry and include the names of Jean Baptist Huet a French painter (1745-1811) as was Etienne JEAURAT (1699-1789)
Madeline Jarry and R.A. WEIGERT authored a books on French tapestry.
The Aubusson tapestry manufacture of the 17th and 18th centuries managed to compete with the royal manufacture of Gobelins tapestry and the privileged position of Beauvais tapestry.[1] Tapestry manufacture at Aubusson, in the upper valley of the Creuse in central France, may have developed from looms in isolated family workshops established by Flemings that are noted in documents from the 16th century.
Typically, Aubusson tapestries depended on engravings as a design source or the full-scale cartoons from which the low-warp tapestry-weavers worked. As with Flemish and Parisian tapestries of the same time, figures were set against a conventional background of verdure, stylized foliage and vignettes of plants on which birds perch and from which issue glimpses of towers and towns.
True Aubusson Tapestries are very large for example 113 inches x 125 inches,or 82 inches by 185 inches. They are also on wool. The subject matter is typically outdoor scenes with a floral border.
Your Tapestry is a French Parlor scene that appears in several forms the complete scene is usually 18 inches by 54 inches. Yours is the left half. It is machine made circa 1920. They usually sell at auction for $100.00 to $150.00. In a retail setting the have an estimated value range of $200.00 to $300.00.
