Exceptionally distinctive vintage folk art wool wall hanging, exuding a captivating “Kilim” style portraying a knight from Normandy, France. Skillfully hand-woven, dating back to the 1950s.
What truly sets this piece apart is the intricate wool and brass thread weaving used to craft the knight’s helmet, a stunning detail best appreciated through the accompanying close-up images.
The knight is adorned in the armor characteristic of a Norman knight, bearing a shield and sword while proudly standing before a backdrop of a blue flag.
For ease of display, the wall hanging is neatly mounted on a wooden frame, ensuring it hangs elegantly on your wall. Alternatively, it can be displayed without this frame.
Maintaining a commendable vintage condition, the colors remain vivid, and the wool exhibits no visible signs of damage, adding to its overall appeal.
