These covered urns are miniature adaptations of the stepped forms that topped columns at the entrance to the Pavillons de la Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, designed by Henri Patou, at the 1925 Paris Exposition. They were purchased at the fair by Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller Jr. and were on display in their apartment at 740 Park Avenue.
