Daventry is a city in England and also a foreign kingdom.
Oswald Oakhurst was selling fine rugs from the King's palace in Daventry, that had been auctioned off for a fraction of their worth. The rugs were thick, luxurious with a foreign look to them. He also knelt on a thick rug woven in the Daventry style. One shows the crest of Daventry and another has the shield of Lytton.
