This type of ware is clearly listed in the Preiskurant of 1767, where class 5 "mit bunten bouquets, verguldet, oder mosaique und guirlanden" are the second most expensive category, cheaper only than wares with purple landscapes and gilt grotesques. Individual plates cost 6 guilders each, the sauce-boats were 8 guilders and the salt-cellars 5 guilders each.
The pattern of the present lot, inspired as it was by Berlin wares, is usually referred to as Berliner Muster. This is more frequently found with green grounds to match the grune Tafel service ordered for Frederick the Great's father-in-law, Margrave Karl Wilhelm Friedrich von Ansbach.
The present pink ground would appear to be unrecorded.
