Two 'Red Dragon' pattern services were amongst Meissen porcelain made in the Japanese and Chinese style for the French merchant Lemaire around 1729-31. Subsequently confiscated, the porcelain was removed to the Japanese Palace in 1733 where the service was admired by the Saxon court and further supplemented with additional wares for use at Dresden. See Alexandra W. Troschinskaja, 'Das außergewöhnliche Schicksal des Hofservices 'Roter Drache' von August dem Starken', Keramos 202, October 2008, pp. 65-74 for further discussion of the service. A similar two-handled beaker with the K.H.C. mark for the Saxon Royal Court Pantry is in the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin and illustrated by Stefan Bursche, Meissen Steinzeug und Porzellan des 18. Jahrhunderts, Berlin, 1980, p. 207, no. 185.
