This vitrine was formerly in the collection of the Monseigneur Le Comte de Paris et Madame la Comtesse de Paris from the Villa La Quinta Do Anjiho in Portugal.

When, after the Second World War, the Count and Countess of Paris (Duc and Duchesse d'Orleans) moved to La Quinta, they decorated the villa almost entirely with furniture and works of art from the estate of the Duc de Guise.

Before the war, most of the pieces were in other residences belonging to the family, namely the House of Anjou near Brussels, Le Mouvion en Thierarche near Lille, Arc en Barrois in Eastern France and the magnificent palace of Orleans in Palermo.

The Comte de Paris inherited from his grandmother, the Duchess of Chartres (who was the only daughter of the Prince of Joinville), the entire estate of Arc de Barrois. The Comte de Paris was left by his father, the Duc de Guise, the castle of Nouvion du Thierarch, whose contents were handed down from his father the Duc d'Aumale.
