  • PROVENANCE:
    Purchased by the present owner's family in Paris in the 1920s

    The number of balls, or palle, depicted on the Medici coat-of-arms varied with successive Medici rulers. That on the vase depicted in the present painting has six, suggesting a reference to Ferdinand I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany (1549-1609), although the painting itself would have been produced after his death.

    In correspondence in 2008 Professor Mina Gregori suggested an attribution to Andrea Scacciati on the basis of photographs.
