James Webster was the manager of the Guild of Handicraft in its last few years and tried in vain to make it profitable.

The subject is allegorical. The inscription is the first and second antiphons from the First Vespers of Christmas in the Roman Breviary:

'The King of Peace whom the whole world desireth to see, hath shown His greatness: the King of Peace hath shown His greatness above all kings of the whole Earth'.
