Catalogue Note

A hypothesis has been suggested regarding the engraving on the handles: it could refer to St François d'Assise and the tree he planted that is still visible. This cup's wood would have come from this tree (alber).

Une hypothèse a été suggérée concernant la gravure sur les anses: elle pourrait faire référence à St François d’Assise et à l’arbre qu’il a planté et qui est encore visible. Le bois de cette coupe proviendrait de cet arbre (alber).
