A 16th century lampas silk panel with a design from the same cartoon on a golden ground is in the State Hermitage Musuem, (Iran in the Hermitage (in Russian), exhibition catalogue, St Petersburg, 2004, p.162, no.203). A second panel of the same lampas as that was in the Kelekian collection (A. U. Pope, A Survey of Persian Art, Oxford, 1938, pl.1013A).
The general subject of a noble and attendant is also known in another variant. A Safavid silk and gold brocade, from the Rosenborg Palace Collection, Copenhagen depicts a child offering a flower to his prince; the ground is filled with foliage, flowers and exotic birds, (Hali, Issue 35, 1987, p.65).
Four panels of the same textile have recently been on the market. All probably came from the same original coat or hanging. These were in Sotheby's, London, 5 April 2006, lot 125, which was sold with a carbon date test result consistent with the proposed dating; Sotheby's London, 24 October 2007, lot 364 (a composite small panel), and in these Rooms, 23 October 2007, lot 173. This last one was the largest of all the panels to have appeared. Please see also lot 219 in this sale.
