Extraordinary Early Wall Hanging Embroidery

Two 17th/18th Century joined tapestry panels of silk and metallic thread embroidered birds, florals, and foliage.   Many losses and loose strings, but now basically stable and has a very beautiful affect.  Backed with a later heavy cotton damask.  Possibly Portuguese.
