Lille produced numerous versions of Teniers' subjects. The first recorded series was woven under Jan de Melter (d. 1698), who established his workshop in 1688, for a local client Michel de Pelletier. With the arrival of Guillaume Werniers (d. 1738), who in 1700 married Melter's daughter, Lille's Teniers tapestry production reached its climax. The subjects were also woven under the supervision of his second wife, Katherine Ghuys, who carried on the workshop for several more years, copying the subjects woven during her husband's directorship. A Teniers series would normally consist of eight panels, but these could vary widely in composition.
A tapestry with the same dancing group and bagpiper, but also including further figures, woven by Guillaume Werniers, is illustrated in H.C. Marillier, Handbook to the Teniers Tapesries, London, 1932, plate 47, while a further, apparently by Katherine, is illustrated in D. Boccara, Les Belles Heures de la Tapisserie, Milan, 1971, p. 177
