Footnotes

  • The name of this design has been contested on the grounds that the animals depicted resemble nothing of a Chamois, but more of a Oryx, as determined by the long straight horns and long tails. The small gazelle in the 'Rhages' roundel shows more influence from Hispano-Moresque sources, rather than Persian where the name originates, highlighting the vast breadth of influences Daisy Makeig-Jones employed in her designs.
