A related hunting scene and leaf cartouches feature on a coromandel lacquer screen of the Kangxi period (1660-1722) thought to have been shipped to England in 1682 by Elihu Yale, Governor of Fort St.George, India (M. Jourdain and R. Soame Jenyns, Chinese Export Art, London, 1951, fig. 13; and O. Garnett, Erddig, London, 1999, pp. 71 and 72). One of the finest examples of a soapstone-inlaid twelve-panel screen was sold anonymously, Christie's Hong Kong, 28 April 2003, lot 592. Another soapstone-inlaid lacquer screen was sold by E. R. Hanbury, Esq., removed from Burley-on-the-Hill, Rutland, in these Rooms, 6 July 1989, lot 146 (£7,700). The screen also depicted mounted warriors hunting tigers, deer, rabbits and various animals. Parallels with Shirburn are evident: Burley-on-the-Hill was begun in 1696 by the 2nd Earl of Nottingham, Secretary of State for War between 1688-1693. He succeeded to the senior Earldom of Winchelsea in 1729.
