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.

This study is probably for the fifth panel of the stained glass, and the upper part of this figure resembles that in the stained glass very closely; however, the movement of the legs is dissimilar. Another drapery study for the figure in panel five is in the collection of the Courtauld Institute of Art, London.

Purchased and presented by subscribers, 1903.
