DESCRIPTION:  Here we see a grand, fine, magnificent, and important heraldic wall tapestry of obvious Baroque style, woven certainly at Brussels by a renown tapestry maker, originally conceived perhaps as a compliment of a series of narrative subjects, or included in a series which comprised similar or equal heraldic figurations, other components of which however have not survived. Unpublished and for a long time lost from the sight of scholars, it was however cited in three important texts of bibliography specialised in antique tapestry, following its passage to the market at Paris in 1875 coming from the collection of Paul Galitzin.
