For a coffee-cup and saucer painted in a similar style signed Samuel Mohn, see Rainer Rückert, Meissener Porzellan (Munich, 1966), p. 187, pl. 792.
The sitters are members of the Saxon Royal Family, centred around Frederick Augustus III, Elector of Saxony (1750-1827). His brothers Anton, Electoral Prince of Saxony (1755-1836) and Maximilien (1759-1838) appear on the tray alongside Anton's wife, Therese Archduchess of Austria (1767-1827). The coffee-pot is painted with Charles, Duke Carl Christian Joseph of Saxony (1733-1796) who became Duke of Courland in 1758 and his sister, Elisabetha Princess of Saxony (1736-1818), is on the reverse. Duke Albert of Saxe-Teschen (1738-1822), uncle of Frederick Augustus III appears on the hot-milk jug alongside Marie, perhaps a likeness of his wife the Archduchess Marie Christine (1742-1798). It was not unusual to incorporate deceased first spouses in family portraits, in this instance Charlotte of Sardinia (1764-1782), first wife of Prince Anton appears on the sugar-bowl. Ferdinand, Duke of Parma (1751-1801) and his son Louis I of Eturia (1773-1803) are on the coffee-cup and saucer.
