Why this is a
Masterpiece

A fine example of Luis the First of Portugal's taste for antiquities.

History of the Object
Following information from the “judicial inventory” of the Palace of Ajuda, this carpet was acquired by King Luis I of Portugal on the occasion of one of his voyages to London. King Luis bought this piece, already considered an antique, from the supplier Thomas Bontor and Company, London – a well established firm in this city.
