    For the arms see Dr. Jochem Kroes, Chinese Armorial Porcelain for the Dutch Market, The Hague, 2007, p. 224-5, no. 135, where the author suggests that this service could also have been made for Jan Abraham Brul, who was an assistant for the Dutch East India Company. Kroes also points out that the many of remaining pieces from this service are now in museums in The Netherlands. A dish (31 cm.) from this service from the Peter H. B. Frelinghuysen, Jr. Collection, was sold Christie's New York, 24 January 2012, lot 129; and a plate was sold Christie's, New York, 21 January 1999, lot 20.
