    A number of chintz rumals and large summer carpets bear inventory notations written by clerks in the storeroom of the Amber Palace, near Jaipur. This rumal has only a brief notation indicating an inventory date of November–December 1673. Some rumals have more informative notations, giving multiple inventory dates, sizes, and even prices. This example shows scenes of courtly life involving figures in both Persian and Indian dress.
