The identity of the initials JVP is not known, although the owner was probably English. This cup and saucer and other objects in these cases were once owned by one of the most serious collectors of Chinese export porcelain in America, Helena Woolworth McCann. Mrs. McCann left her collection to a number of museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and museums in Boston, Brooklyn, Buffalo, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Hartford, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Louisville, Norfolk, Providence, Richmond and Springfield. The Winfield Foundation served as the executor of her estate.
