Provenance

Early 15th century, possibly Amaury d'Orgemont (b. about 1360 - d. 1400) and his wife, Marie de Paillart (b. about 1355 - d. after 1424), France [see note 1]. 19th century until about 2005, private collection, Switzerland. 2005, Alexander Rudigier, Ltd., London; 2005, sold by Rudigier to the MFA. (Accession Date: January 25, 2006)

NOTES:
[1] The four silver drinking vessels that comprise this set (MFA accession nos. 2006.648 - 2006.651) were acquired with six cups (2006.642 - 2006.647) that bear the arms of Amaury d'Orgemont and Marie de Paillart, members of the court of Valois. It has been suggested that the objects share a history with a covered cup (2006.641) and a pair of silver cups (2006.652 - 2006.653) acquired at the same time, perhaps beginning with Amaury d'Orgemont and his wife.
