DON AGUSTÍN FERNANDO MUNOZ Y SÁNCHEZ The arms are of Agustín Fernando Munoz y Sánchez, Duke of Riánsares and Montmorot, Marquis of San Agustín, a Peer of France, born Tarascon. He married the Queen Regent of Spain Donña Maria Cristina of Bourbon. The second arm belongs to the French Dukedom of Montmorot. The firm of Frederic Schallenberg was in a number of Parisian trade directories until the mid-19th century as a 'Fabricant de bronzes, lustres, cristaux garnis et service de table'. Probably these urns were made on the occasion of the marriage of Agustín Fernando Munoz y Sánchez and Donña Maria Cristina of Bourbon.
