The model for this cachepot was created by the painter Johann Christoph Kimpfel (1750-1804) for the ballroom of the Orangerie in the Neuen Garten in Potsdam, which was built for King Friedrich Wilhelm II in 1791-1792 by Carl Gotthard Langhals.
This cachepot was inspired after a water colour from Ausgrabungen in Pompeji by Jacob Philipp Hackert (1737-1807).
