'Susanna and the Elders', a pair of Biblical Old Testament tapestry panels, Northern European,

17th century


Each woven with figure of Susanna at her bath in the formal gardens, flanked by two elders (Old Testament: Apocrypha), from whom she is eventually saved in the law court by Daniel, within a four-sided floral border, incorporating corner cartouches enclosing various motifs which could have appropriate symbolism, such as the ships (early Christian association with the ship being the refuge in which the faithful found safety and salvation), and the lower corners with figures holding an anchor (symbol of hope in early Christianity), and a pillar (symbol of spiritual strength and steadfastness); mounted within anti-reflective glazed frames (2)

Frames: 75cm high, 70cm wide: Tapestry panel: 52cm high, 49cm wide

Both in professionally restored condition. Some repairs to the light coloured highlights, and to the sleeve of Bathsheba in one of the panels. Evidence of dark green outer selvedge on left vertical edge of one of panels. Very decorative panels.
