Thank you so much to Jena Gonzalez for sharing this news with me. It has been reported that a long-lost tapestry thought to have been owned by King Henry VIII has been found in a New York rug shop by historian Mary Beard.
Here are links to news articles and photos of the find:
- Long-lost King Henry VIII tapestry found in NYC rug gallery?
- Mary Beard stumbles upon ‘priceless set of Henry VIII tapestries’ in New York City rug shop
However, Mary Beard has written her own article on the find and actually dates the tapestry to after Henry VIII’s reign – see http://timesonline.typepad.com/dons_life/2016/12/a-lost-caesar-tapestry. Thank you to Charlie Fenton for the link.
