Antique Wall Tapestries, Panels & Paintings from Westland London
Our collection of Antique paintings and antique tapestry and panels includes fine antique wall tapestries, period oil paintings and decorative panels.
Here at Westland London, we think it is important for a period interior to have a selection of antique paintings. Of all the mediums, antique oil paintings certainly have the most presence, often framed in beautiful gilt and gesso. Of our antique paintings for sale, nearly all of them would look beautiful in a number of settings, whether it be above an antique fireplace, hanging in a hallway, or within the intimacy of a study. Antique oil paintings have always been prized objects within an interior, and displayed within principal rooms, so guests might admire them also.
Much like antique paintings, antique tapestries have hung for centuries in grand interiors. England was at the centre of tapestry weaving in the medieval period, and perhaps the most famous tapestry of all, The Bayeux Tapestry, was made on British soil for the Norman Cathedral. Antique French Tapestries, such as Aubusson tapestries, are also well known for being high quality and very desirable and were often more colourful than the Flemish verdure tapestries that often depicted verdant green landscapes and nature. Antique tapestries bring a softness to interiors, showing that fabric need not only be for curtains and furniture!
Antique wall hangings needn’t only be limited to the wall though! Often, when damaged or incomplete, they can be used to upholster a room screen, headboards, and cushions. If you are searching for antique tapestries for sale, UK dealers that are members of organisations such as LAPADA are a good place to start as you know you will be buying good quality pieces from knowledgeable dealers.
