A coffeepot and two teabowls from the Wark Collection, similarly decorated with landscape scenes of ruins, are illustrated in Ulrich Pietsch, Early Meissen from the Wark Collection from The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, p. 561, cat no. 685, where the author mentions that the depictions are executed in the style of August Otto Ernst von dem Busch and "possibly came from the hand of his pupil Johann Gottfried Kratzberg". Pietsch further states on p. 45 that von dem Busch and Kraztberg "cannot be called Hausmaler in the true sense of the word", as these "painters from the nobility engaged in the decoration of Meissen porcelain, though only as a hobby and not with the intention of making financial gain."
