A print of Sir Robert Pecke who died in 1517. It sort of looks like the print has been cut out and mounted on black paper.

It's been in my family for decades.
Wooden frame measures 29cm x 62cm. Matte glass.

The back says Sir Robert Pecke was the Clerk of the Spicery to King Henry VIII.
From the Parish Church Cookham, Berkshire.

From a website about the history of Cookham Church in Berkshire:

Against the north wall of the chancel is a table tomb with a canopy supported by twisted columns, the soffit of the canopy panelled in imitation of fan vaulting. The whole is of plaster, very carelessly re-erected at some comparatively recent period. On the slab of the table is an elaborate brass, showing it to be the tomb of Robert Pecke, who died 13 January 1517, and Agnes his wife. At the top, in the centre, is a Trinity and on the dexter and sinister sides are shields. So carelessly has the tomb been put together that the columns supporting the canopy have been planted on the top of these shields, partly obscuring their charges. The sinister has a bend charged with three double-headed eagles and the dexter is lozengy. Below are the figures of Robert Pecke, in plate armour, and of his wife Agnes, with inscribed labels issuing from their mouths. The inscription states that he was clerk of the spicery to Henry VI.

(Note difference of website info to back of art - Henry VIII : Henry VI - I'm not sure which is correct)
