The exceptional crispness of the modelling suggests that this example was an early cast from the moulds. The white example from the Kaumheimer Collection was sold in these Rooms on 8th December 2003, lot 52. For a coloured example in the Bäuml Collection, see Alfred Ziffer, Nymphenburger Porzellan, Sammlung Bäuml, Schloss Nymphenburg Catalogue, Munich (Stuttgart, 1997), p. 65, no. 100 and another of slightly later date, p. 66, no. 102.
