    In addition to a Chinese blue and white dinner service, to which this tureen-stand once belonged, there are a few known renderings of the house on Delftware, one of which still remains at Burghley, and also a finely-painted grisaille Chinese export punch bowl also depicting the house, and also at Burghley. A smaller stand, complete with its tureen and cover, from the Collection of Leo and Doris Hodroff, was sold at Christie's New York, 21 January 2009, lot 171.
