The colour range and type of weave is essentially identical to numerous examples of tapestries woven with Spanish armorials that have very moorish-inspired borders. These examples are generally believed to have been woven in Spain (A. Gray Bennett, Five Centuries of Tapestry from The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, San Francisco, 1992, cats. 36 - 37, pp. 138 - 141). Several weavers, many of them of Flemish origin, are recorded during the 17th Century in Spain, but it is very rare that armorial tapestries can be attributed to weavers. Armorial tapestries of this character are also believed to have been woven in Flanders to supply the foreign markets.
