This pattern appears to be unrecorded in the literature, though the birds are based on a Chinese Kangxi dish in the famille verte style from the collection of Augustus the Strong in the Japanese Palace, Dresden.1 A single plate, presumably from the same service, was sold from a private collection by Sotheby's London, 24 November 1998, lot 45, and again at Lempertz Cologne, 15-16 November 2001, lot 64. A slightly different version of the pattern can be found on a slop-bowl in the Wark Collection, see Ulrich Pietsch, Early Meissen Porcelain: The Wark Collection, from the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, London, 2011, p. 251, no. 243, and on a tea canister and cover and teapot and cover in the Dr. Ernst Schneider Collection, illustrated by Julia Weber, Meissener Porzellane mit Dekoren nach ostasiatischen Vorbildern, Munich, 2013, Vol. II, p. 369, no. 380.
