Notes: 
Tapestry manufacture at Aubusson and in the upper valley of the Creuse in central France. They have developed from looms in isolated family workshops established by Flemings that are noted in documents from the 16th century. The town of Felletin is identified as the source from which came the Aubusson tapestries in the inventory of Charlotte of Albret, Duchess of Valentinois and widow of Cesare.
