The Livery Corridor
This corridor, linking the Livery Hall with the Drawing Room, forms part of Sir Thomas Graham Jackson’s alterations of 1898-9. The oak panelling, dated 1899, features carvings representing the trades connected with the drapers' craft.
On display is a selection of the Company’s Royal Charters and grants of arms including the Letters Patent of King Edward III, 1364; the re-incorporating Charter of King James I, 1607; the Grant of Arms, 1439, which is the earliest known extant English grant of arms to a corporate body; and the Letters Patent of Queen Elizabeth II, 1964 and of 2008.
At the end of the corridor, the stained glass window contains the coat of arms of the three Princes and one Princess granted the Freedom of the Company, with the date of admission:- Prince William of Orange (later King William III), Prince Carl of Denmark (King Haakon of Norway), Prince Albert (King George VI) and Princess Elizabeth (now Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II).
