FRAGMENT OF A TAPESTRY BORDER
Colors faded. Restorations.
The fragment on offer was part of the border of a large tapestry; very similar borders are found, for example, in the tapestries from a series about Romolus and Remus by François Geubels, which are on exhibit i.a. in the Kunsthistorische Museum in Vienna (Guy Delmarcel. La tapisserie flamande. Paris 1999, pp. 155ff.). In that tapestry, the group of figures is somewhat modified, and provided with a cartouche inscribed: "REGNVM AVTEN JVSTICIA ET LIBERALITATE".
