The decoration on this ice-pail combines Japanese Kakiemon-style indianische Blumen with Foo-lions inspired by those on Chinese vases of the Kangxi period (1662-1722). An almost identical ice-pail and cover is illustrated by Ulrich Pietsch, Early Meissen Porcelain, The Wark Collection, London, 2011, p. 247, no. 238, where the author notes that the form was probably modelled by Christoph Ludwig Lücke after drawings of contemporary Augsburg silverware shapes acquired by the sculptor. See also Rainer Rückert, Meissener Porzellan, Munich, 1966, cat. no. 525, pl. 133 for a similar ice-pail with handles of the same form, where details from Lücke's 'Spezification' for 1728-29 (the two years during which he was employed at Meissen) are given, reporting that he modelled 'Einen Henckel in Forma einer Sirena auf einen Eyß Topf' (a handle in the form of a Siren on an ice cream pot).
