A single wine-cooler of similar form was exhibited in Rome, Argenti Romani di Tre Secoli Nelle Raccolte Private, Palazo Braschi, 7-26 May 1970, no. 129, pl. LXXI.
Pietro Paolo Spagna (w. 1817-1861) is recorded as working for the Borghese family. The firm supplied additional silver to the well-known Borghese service by Martin-Guillaume Biennais. These pieces were probably ordered by Princess Pauline Borghese, who lived separatly from her husband, in Rome from 1814-1828. It is probable that these coolers were included in the Borghese Palace sale, in Rome 1892.
