UNIQUE AND MAGNIFICENT EMBROIDERED SILK WORK OF THE TAJ MAHAL. Mid 20th century, India. An exceptionally detailed 3-dimensional (rising up to 3/4″) rendering of the Taj Mahal and its formal gardens and reflecting pool. Wrought against a night sky. The mausoleum rendered in 3-dimensional detail includes a faithful rendition of the main spandrel depicting the polychrome floral scrolling vinery. Bordering the spandrel, the calligraphy on the pishtaq of the main portal has been carefully reproduced in metallic thread. Extending forward is the reflecting pool wrought in shades of blues and grays. The reflective image of the front of the mausoleum can be clearly seen. The windows woven in gold thread, the balustrades and friezes decorated with polychrome thread mimicking floral vinery. The gilded finial of the central dome is beautifully represented in gold thread. Framing the Taj Mahal the rendition of the four outer minarets places an added dimension to the whole. The formal gardens in the foreground bordered by 3-dimensional cypress shrubs representing the changes to the garden under British rule. Framing this tableau is a wide border of midnight blue velvet arabesques, the larger of which contain a 3-dimensional bejeweled flowering plant alternating with smaller arabesques, each with a single jeweled bloom. Further framed by a secondary border of single jeweled blooms above scrolling latticework. Jeweled flowers encompass approximately 1760 cabochons of which 10 appear to be sapphires, 680 appear to be emeralds, and 1070 appear to be rubies. Because of the variations of color in some of the stones we are approximating the proportion of sapphires to rubies. The floral borders represent the shrubbery found within the formal gardens. The whole within a beige velvet frame. Now mounted in a contemporary gold gilt frame behind plexiglass. This extraordinary work is the product of a 10 year endeavor by a father and son during which time the large embroidery of the Sacred Peacock was created. These two important works descended through the family until they were acquired by the current owner. They were first on public display in the Ivory Palace, a commercial outlet in Dehli, India. Subsequently, at the personal request of Indira Ghandi, the works were placed in the Pavilion of India during the 1967 International Exposition in Montreal Canada. At the conclusion of the exposition the ownership of the tapestries transferred to the current owner. SIZE: Sight: 67″ h x 92-1/2″ w. Frame: 80″ h x 105″ w. CONDITION: The floral border with strong, vibrant color accentuating the more subdued colors of the central panel. All of which remain as was originally intended. Therefore, in very fine condition overall. All jewels appear to be present. Two surface scratches to interior of plexiglass proper left side. Additionally a 1″ diagonal hairline crack in plexiglass proper upper left corner. 9-26419 (50,000-70,000)

BYNG, JOHN, ADMIRAL (1704-1757). LETTER SIGNED (“J. BYNG”) TO CAPTAIN BARRY, SPITHEAD, ABOARD H.M.S. RAMILLIES, APRIL 1756. 1 page, 4to, matted and framed with engraving of Byng’s execution. BYNG EMBARKS ON THE VOYAGE THAT ENDED HIS CAREER AND HIS LIFE. A rare Byng letter, written from his flagship at Spithead, five days before setting sail on his fateful mission to Minorca. Here he issues orders to Capt. Barry aboard the Kingston: “You are hereby required and directed to receive onboard His Majesty’s ship under your command Lieutenant Hugh Batterson and two recruits belonging to the Rt. Honorable Lord Penmure’s regiment, bearing them on a supernumerary list for victuals only during their continuance onboard; and to make a demand for bedding for them.” Just days before the Admiralty ordered Byng to set sail to Gibraltar from whence he was to ferry 100 troops to St. Philip’s Castle, the fort that guarded the entrance to the port of Mahón, on the eastern tip of Minorca. Byng was convinced that neither his 10 ship fleet nor the inadequate number of troops could prevent a French conquest of the garrison. He told London on 4 May that he would not carry out his orders. Transporting a mere 100 troops would be a needless sacrifice of the men, he argued. By the time this letter arrived in London however the French announced their successful landing on Minorca, stirring outrage back home. To compound his misfortune, Byng ineptly battled the French fleet off Minorca on 20 May with only a few of his ships engaging the enemy. The French sailed away unscathed and the British garrison surrendered on 28 June. By the time Byng returned home on 26 July, both the King and the mob were baying for his blood–“This man will not fight!” George II exclaimed. Byng was arrested and confined at Greenwich. A court martial found him guilty in January 1757, sentenced him to death but recommended mercy. None was forthcoming. On 14 March 1757 Byng–an M.P. for Rochester as well as a full Admiral–was shot on the quarterdeck of the Monarque in Portsmouth. ONLY ONE OTHER BYNG LETTER HAS COME TO AUCTION IN THE LAST 35 YEARS, and none have appeared from the Minorca campaign. SIZE: 17″ x 22-1/2″. CONDITION: Very good with some edge time toning. 9-27474 (800-1,200)
