Discussion[edit]

Pictogram voting question.svg Question Since you only gave one example, it’s hard to tell if you intend this property to apply to individual items in a collection, or something else. Is the value of this property intended to be the person who bequeathed the asset? If so, the label should be changed to “bequest of” or “bequeathed by”. “Bequest” does not mean a person, and in fact in some cases there is a named bequest that includes a number of items (the Iveagh Bequest at Kenwood House is an example). Perhaps “donor” would be better if we want the person? - PKM (talk) 03:37, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
