- Two examples of the same cup and saucer as ours, but not painted, are found at the National Museum of Capodimonte (Naples, Italy), inv. OA 1907-1915 n ° 7012 and 7013, old collection of the Bourbon of the Two Sicilies at the Royal Palace of Capodimonte. They are attributed to Nast, but we prefer the allocation to Dagoty because Christie’s sold the same cup with the Dagoty brand.
