According to the order book of the Maison Boiceau, this lot was ordered on the 26 February 1929.
Born in Switzerland, Ernest Boiceau studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, where in around 1910 he began creating fabrics and embroideries. With the opening of his atelier on the avenue de l'Opera, Paris, he filed a patent in 1925 for the 'point de Cornely', a weaving method derived from a technique perfected by the inventor E. Cornely in 1865. In 1927 L'Art Vivant noted that the result was a carpet with an aspect of life unmatched by any other method of weaving. He opened a shop in rue Pierre Charon and later Avenue Matignon and exhibited at the Salon d'automne in 1928 and 1929, while undertaking the decoration of private residences in France, Switzerland and the United States. Boiceau closed his atelier on the eve of the Second World War.
