Catalogue Note

The central motifs of the double-sided ivory relief are analogous to an example in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (inv. no. 17.190.129). It is likely that the present ivory disk forms one half of a folding panagia; what is likely to have been the other half, also now in a 17th-century pendant mount, was sold in the Hann collection sale (referenced above) as lot 161.
