Simpson Galleries' sale of Fine Art and Antiques from an important Houston Collection included this singular historic specimen originating from Africa.

This African lion rug, felt backed with a full head mount, comes from the collection of the late John Connally, Governor of Texas.


The rug sold with a certificated signed by late Texas Governor John Connally

One-hundred-and-eight inches in length, the rug sold with a certificated signed by Mr and Mrs Connally.

Its final hammer price was $4,250 at Simpson's sale, yesterday (Sunday, April 11).
