The Medici Dossier and the Allard Pierson Museum
The cup was placed on loan in the museum (inv. B 11.999). What is more interesting is that an additional fragment was supplied by Herbert Cahn (inv. 13.247; formerly HC 1468). The Medici polaroids show the cup in fragments as well as in a restored form. How did Cahn acquire his fragment?
The Allard Pierson Museum will no doubt be arranging the return of this cup to Italy.
