The Greenery Tapestry
John Henry Dearle tapestries
The Greenery Tapestry is a simplified version of the original 1892 John Henry Dearle tapestry which is exhibited now in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
The original tapestry which shows rabbits, a pheasant and deer is clearly influenced by William Morris. It was woven at Merton Abbey by Morris & Co in wool and mohair and measures over 15 feet in length;
Our version is woven today in France by long-established tapestry weavers in 72% cotton, 25% viscose and 3% polyester. Please note that the smaller size has slightly softer colour tones. It is fully lined and has a rod pocket – we supply hanging information with all orders.
This fine example of John Henry Dearle tapestries is available in two sizes for each of several formats:
– this full scene with its red border,
– the full tapestry without the border,
– the left portion having the two rabbits and pheasant,
– the right portion having the pheasant and two deer.
