Hansen assisted the owner of the Danish brewery company, Carlsberg, Carl Jacobsen (1842-1914), to acquire land upon which the museum Glypoteket, was built for his private collection. H. N. Hansen was also on the first board of the museum. As a gift for his contribution to the acquisition of the site, Carl Jacobsen donated the marble tazza to H. N. Hansen. The tazza has been used for a while in the City Hall of Copenhagen.
