The presence of "à or" (gold) threading suggests that these borders may com from the Garde-Meuble royal (French Royal Guard Household) or from a prestigious patron.
The Royal Palace of Genoa (Italy) has a Story of Diana tapestry with a "canines" border which bears the mark of Philippe Maëcht (or Philippe de Maëcht), master weaver from the Faubourg St. Marcel workshops, after a design by Toussaint Dubreuil (1558-1602), first painter to the French King.
