Provenance

Maurice Kann, Paris; (Duveen Brothers), 1908, as part of the Kann collection; purchased February 1910 by Peter A. B. Widener, Elkins Park, Pennsylvania; inheritance from the Estate of Peter A. B. Widener by gift through power of appointment of Joseph E. Widener, Elkins Park, 1942.[1]

[1] It is possible that this is the dish sold at the Soltykoff sale in Paris, 8 April-1 May 1861, no. 668, described as a Pesaro plate 40 cm. in diameter, painted with "deux cavaliers combattant vêtus à l'antique. Le bord est orné de feuillages;" this was bought by Carrand, but is not in the Carrand collection at the Bargello.
