  • Remarks
    Due to some confusion in the object register, HUMFA_12-12-195 (MFAB_13.3431) was thought to consist of two nearly identical model jars, only one of which was accessioned by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and then deaccessioned to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, as MMA_64.66.4. However, it appears that the other jar in question is actually HUMFA_12-12-194 (MFAB_13.3430), which is still in the MFA's collection.
