One of eleven studies in Birmingham's collection for a series of six stained glass panels called 'The Garland Weavers', installed in the Green Dining Room at 1 Palace Green (now in the Victoria and Albert Museum). The figures were set into three windows, with two panels in each, forming part of a larger scheme for which Philip Webb was responsible.The two studies of a right hand and a left hand at the top of the sheet were used in the finished watercolour 'The Garland Weavers' of 1866-67 (London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham Public Libraries, Cecil French Bequest, on loan to Leighton House, Kensington).
