23 AUBUSSON. PARIS. 9 Actions de F250=£10. black on pink paper. No 8329-8337. We believe this to be a manufacturer of the famous Aubusson tapestries. The manufacture of carpets has been carried on at Aubusson (Creuse) since at least 1538. Beauvais-style tapestries and Gobelins are (or were recently) still made on hand-looms. The factory probably began with the help of immigrant weavers from Flanders. In 1665 the factory at Aubusson was placed under royal patronage. The tapestry works at the neighbouring towns of Felletin & Bellegarde were under the same control, and followed the same traditions.
