Lot Essay

See footnote to the previous lot. Due to the popularity of Meissen porcelain with this design, it is possible orders to reproduce it on export porcelain were sent to China. Assuming this to be the case, the present service, due to its Meissen-style cartouche, may well have been amongst the first of the Chinese versions.
