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.
 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.
