All the scenes on the teabowls are derived from elements found on sheet 18 of J.G. Höroldt's Schulz Codex. All the scenes on the saucers are derived from five of the six scenes enclosed within circles on sheet 20 of the Schulz Codex, echoing their eventual use as the central decorative elements of circular saucers. (Nine of the ten scenes and their corresponding Schulz Codex drawings are illustrated on the previous two pages; the un-illustrated figure on one teabowl is also derived from sheet 18). The sixth scene of sheet 20, which shows a figure playing a mandolin, is the graphic source for the sixth saucer of this service, which is in a private Continental collection.
Some of the figures on sheet 20 also appear on a beaker and a krug decorated by J.G. Höroldt, illustrated by Siegfried Ducret, 'Vorbilder Für Porzellanmalereien' Keramos, April 1969, No. 44, pls. 26 and 27.
