Object history note

This motif, with minor variations and the arms of Berry and Bourbon-Sicily, appears as the central panel of a design made by Saint-Ange in 1820 for a Savonnerie carpet for the Salon de Réception of the Duchesse de Berry in the Tuileries. The design, in the Archives of the Mobilier National, is reproduced as Pl.31 in Recueil de Dessins de Tapis et Tapiseries du Mobilier de la Couronne, published by E. Dumonthier, Paris, 1911.
