The scene is taken from a print by Petrus Schenk Junior from his series Nieuwe geinventeerde Sineesen. The series was republished by Abraham L. den Blaauwen, 'Keramik mit Chinoiserien nach Stichen von Petrus Schenk Jun.', Keramos, 31/66, Abb. 13, no. 16, illustrated above. Den Blaauwen discusses the origins of the service and the reattribution of the decoration which had been traditionally attributed to von Löwenfinck.
Twenty-one plates of this type remain at Osterley Park near London, which was given to the National Trust by the 9th Earl of Jersey in 1949. Thirty-three plates were recorded in an 1860 inventory of the Countess of Jersey's London home. A further group form part of the Wark Collection, at the Cummer Museum, Jacksonville, Florida. Their characteristic features include the high horizon of the landscape and the gold sun and it is also interesting to note that only one of the scenes in the series is repeated. See Abraham L. den Blaauwen, Meissen Porcelain in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, 2000, pp. 279-285 and nos. 202-205 for a series of plates from the service.
