This tapestry is from a Collection formed in the 1950s under the guidance of the famous furniture historian, author and advisor R.W. Symonds (1889-1958). Some of this Collection was sold at Christie's London 24 November 2005, lots 80-93. It is likely that R.W. Symonds was responsible for the purchase of this lot.
