This fragment comes from the same marble entity (a tabernacle or an elaborate frame for a Madonna?) as fragments in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and elsewhere. The high quality of the carving has led them to be attributed to Antonio Rossellino (1427-1479) and to Benedetto da Maiano (1442-1497).
