See D. Howard, The Choice of the Private Trader, London, 1994, p.49 for a discussion on this service, where the author comments that the consistency in the painting of known examples suggests that they were painted over a short period. He adds that although this design is in many ways Chinese rather than Western in taste, part of this service was in the collection of Augustus the Strong at Dresden in 1721 since there are pieces with the Johanneum inventory mark. For example, a smaller dish (25cm. diam.) with Johanneumn mark N:179 is illustrated by S. Jenyns, Later Chinese Porcelain, London, 1951, pl. XXX, no. 2. A plate with similar design, but also without a Johanneum mark, is in the Hodroff Collection illustrated by Howard, ibid., no.18, p.49.
