Catalogue Note

The model which served as inspiration to Cantagalli was most probably one in the Italian Royal collections, published in Deck 1887, p.26, fig.11. A jar of smaller scale, 31cm., shows the existence of this shape since the 1550s on Iznik (British Museum, inv. no.1878,1230.513). A similar example was sold at Christie's South Kensington, 22 April 2016, lot 426.
