– This work was most probably sold or won through the Grand Central Gallery, New York, NY in their annual lottery ca.1923.
– Carlsen uses the same item in another horizontal composition sold at the Grand Central Art Galleries. He seemed to have sold many horizontal composition through the GCAG and it may have been a requirement or possibly he was told to do so by them as he most often worked in vertical or square compositions for his still life during this period.
ca.1923 – unknown.
