A popular textile design by Daniel Marot from ca. 1712 served as the inspiration for the pattern of 08.171.1c (remarkable in retaining its original border), and related gilt-leather panels. Marot, court architect to William III, greatly influenced the decorative arts in the Netherlands at this time; his publication from 1702–1715 of several series of ornamental designs contributed to the popularization of the Louis XIV style in the Netherlands.
