The treatment of the trees and mountains on the saucer is similar to a bottle illustrated by R. von Strasser, op. cit (1973), Vol. XV, p. 142, fig. 14, and to a coffee-pot from the Estate of the late Andreina Torre sold by Christie's Geneva on 16th November 1992, lot 202. A saucer from the same service (as the Torre coffee-pot) with a similar scene to the present saucer was sold in these Rooms on 28th March 1977, lot 73 (the lot comprised a pair of teabowls and saucers). For a view of the Berliner Schloss similar in treatment to the schloss on the present teabowl, see A. Müller-Hofstede, 'Der Schlesisch-Böhmisch Hausmaler Ignaz Preissler' Keramos no. 100 (1983), p. 33, fig. 48. The same saucer is illustrated with its teabowl by Gustav E. Pazaurek, Deutsche Fayence-und Porzellan-Hausmaler (Leipzig, 1925), Vol. I, p. 217, fig. 178.
