Rare 17th Century tapestry restored with lost red squirrel

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A “secret squirrel” has been painstakingly restored on a rare 17th century Flemish tapestry.

The red squirrel was originally woven with wool and silk and hidden in the foliage of the large Enghien tapestry.

The tapestry is one of two that resides at the National Trust’s Dyrham Park estate, near Bath.

The red squirrel has been restored as part of £140,000 of specialist cleaning and repair work to the two tapestries.
