Catalogue Note

The coat of arms on this richly garlanded tondo may be identified as that of the Della Trita family. The name was adopted by Francesco di Lapo Adimari, who declared the change, along with a revised coat of arms, in 1349. An alternative hypothesis regarding the stemma can be proposed on account of the gold bordering the yellow stripes, which also frames the red stripes of the Sapiti family arms; the yellow could have been applied in error (see Diogini, op. cit.).

A Thermoluminescence Analysis Report conducted by Oxford Authentication (Sample No.: N117b97) stated that the date of last firing from the samples taken from this roundel was 'Between 300 and 600 years ago'. The report is available on request.
