A silvered plate of this pattern from the Mottahedeh collection is illustrated by Howard and Ayers (op. cit.), vol. II, p. 527, and sold Sotheby's New York, 19 October 2000, lot 167; another was in the collection of John T. Dorrance, Jr., sold Sotheby's New York, 20 October 1989, lot 369. These silvered plates reflect the prevailing taste for golddekor on Meissen plates, which, as Howard & Ayers write, was fashionable embellishment added at Augsburg in the 1725-40 period.
