Provenance: from the private collection of Joseph Klein (1899-1987), New York City. Mr. Klein sought out and acquired these souvenirs as part of his vast collecting interests. Said to have collected in the manner of an 18th century connoisseur, his overall collection showcased his diverse array of artifacts acquired over a period of 45 years and included the art of ancient China, Egypt, Persia, Greece and Rome. It was purchased several years back by a private collector in the area (southern California) and has since been re-consigned. Ex. Los Angeles private collection.
