Description
The oak tree beneath the papal keys, tiara, acorns, and shields inscribed "IV II" (for Julius II) associate this object with Pope Julius II della Rovere (r. 1503–12). The coat of arms of Melchiorre di Giorgio Manzoli, a Bolognese envoy and loyal supporter of the pope who was probably the bowl's recipient may commemorate the triumphal entry of the pope into Bologna in 1506 and the reestablishment of papal rule in the city. Inscribed "1508 adi 12 de seteb/facta fu i Castel durat/Zoua maria vro" (workshop of Giovanni Maria Vasaro)
