Lot Essay

Lindemann was active at Nymphenburg from 1758 to 1760.

A example of the same form in the Kocher Collection, with the same arms and similar scenes but with different borders, is illustrated by Robert L. Wyss, 'Meisterwerke aus der Sammlung Kocher', Bernischen Historischen Museum, Porzellan Catalogue (Bern, 1965), pp. 196-7. Another in the Bäuml Collection, of slightly different form but with the same arms, similar scenes and different borders, is illustrated by A. Ziffer, Nymphenburger Porzellan (Stuttgart, 1997), pp. 178-179, no. 500.
