The engraved decoration is extremely similar to a design for the embellishment of a goblet by Paul Decker and published by C. Weigel, Neues Groteschken-Werk vor Goldschmidt Glasschneider und andere Kunstler inventirt durch Paul Deckers Architectum.
See Herman Jedding, Meissener Porzellan des 18. Jahrhunderts in Hamburger Privatbesitz Exhibition Catalogue (Hamburg, 1982), no. 3 for a black glazed and engraved teapot and cover of similar form, and where the author lists other known examples. A similar example was sold by Sotheby's London on 4th June 1974, lot 163, and another, formerly in the List collection (possibly the present lot) was sold by Hans W. Lange, Berlin, on 28-30th March 1939, lot 669. A similar glazed and engraved teapot and a related pilgrim flask from the Porzellansammlung, Dresden, are illustrated by Ernst Zimmerman, Die Erfindung und Frühzeit des Meissner Porzellans (Berlin, 1908), pl. 49. Also see Stefan Bursche, Meissen Steinzeug und Porzellan des 18. Jahrhunderts, Kunstgewerbemuseum, Berlin (Berlin, 1980), no. 12, for a related example.
