The lady on the interior of the cover is derived from a design by Johann Esaias Nilson (1721-1788). His original drawing, which has a lady and gentleman seated at a table, is now in the Kunstbibliothek, Staatl. Museen Preuss, Berlin (Inv. no. 12056), and is illustrated by Barbara Beaucamp-Markowsky, Collection of 18th Century Porcelain Boxes, Rijksmuseum loan collection catalogue (Amsterdam, 1988), p. 34, alongside a Meissen box also painted with a similar lady, p. 35. A box with a very similar form of decoration on the interior, but with a different subject, is illustrated by Dr. Klaus-Peter Arnold et. al., 'Ey! wie schmeckt der Coffee süsse', Meissener Porzellan und Graphik, Exhibition Catalogue (Dreseden, 1991), p. 55, no. 47, and an oval box is illustrated by B. Beaucamp-Markowsky, Boîtes en Porcelaine (1985), p. 158, no. 114.
