    The Stuyck workshop characteristically signed some of their carpets at one end of the narrow far outer stripe or within the flat-woven kilim, accompanied by the date of its manufacture. The present carpet also notes the name of the residing monarch at that time, Fernando VII de Borbón, for whom the carpet may well have been commissioned.
