The present panel is comparable with an epitaph relief in Tournai Cathedral from the 1530s and a relief sold in these rooms on 9 December 2005 (lot 12). Both panels are carefully detailed and decorated like the present panel, with scrolling foliage and pierced cresting on their architectural frames. The Tournai relief shows further kneeling female donors but the more elaborate dress and the facial type of the noblewoman in the present relief does suggest a different workshop which was probably active at a slightly later date.
