UPDATE: I can't believe what just happened. Right after I finished this post, I checked out eBay to see what was new and came across the actual tapestry created from the design pictured in Evelyn's color key illustration in the above photo!!!  The eBay seller had no idea who created the piece, though they did say is was "special"; I immediately contacted them to advise them of their good fortune!!!  See the piece below.

Thanks for posting these they are really nice. The king and the Lady
