Embossed leather wall hangings, probably early eighteenth century, painted in various colours on a gold ground with flowering trees, birds and rocks. The decoration was probably inspired by Indian chintz designs. Four of the panels are remarkable for the large dimensions of the skins. There is a two-panel folding screen at Bateman's with hangings from the same set (see inv. no. 761031).
Purchased by the Kiplings on the Isle of Wight in 1902 (see Andrew Lycett, Rudyard Kipling, London, 1999, p.470).
