The Chariot of the Virgin Queen, Lord Mayor's Pageant. Design for a paper fan made by an anonymous artist in 1686 and showing the Lord Mayor's parade. The design is an ink and wash drawing on paper. It illustrates the 1686 inaugural procession of the Lord Mayor, Sir John Peake, when the Chariot of the Virgin Queen (the symbol of Peake's Livery Company, the Mercers') passed through the Stocks Market in the City of London on 29th October. The Virgin Queen is surrounded by her attributes - Fame, Vigilance, Hope, Faith, Wisdom and Chastity - and the chariot is led by Triumph, a Roman charioteer.
