[2] In 1991 Louise Cort had identified the object as of interest for the Freer collection (see Louise Cort's undated memo in the object file).

Jacoby, died 1989), which, at the request of the Freer Gallery, were placed at Trocadéro, Kenny & Higgins Asian Art, Inc. for sale (according to a memo from Louise Cort to Milo Beach and Beth Duley, dated May 22, 1992, in the object file).
