Walter Pach was one of the organisers of the first Armory Show in New York in 1913, the year this print was executed. Villon exhibited a number of cubist paintings and it is likely that he gave La table servie to Pach at this occasion. Twenty years later, Villon painted a portrait of Pach, which is today at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and in 1949 they together published an article titled Thus is Cubism cultivated (Art News, 48, no. 3, New York, May 1949).
A painting of La Table servie from 1912 is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
