In September 1738 Kändler wrote in his work records: '1 großen Vorlege Löffel für Ihro Exc. de Brühl zu dero Tafelservice, welcher ebenfalls in Gestalt einer gewachsenen Muschel, wo Schwäne, Fischreiher und alles was auf den Tellern darinnen befindl.', [1 large serving spoon for his excellency Count Brühl whose table service also has the same shapes of a large shell, upon which is found swans, herons, and everything that’s on the plates.], referenced in Ulrich Pietsch (ed.), Schwanenservice - Meissener Porzellan für Heinrich Graf von Brühl, Leipzig, 2000, p. 168.

Few large serving spoons from the Swan service appear to have survived. Similar examples are found in the Dresden Porzellansammlung (Inv. no. P.E. 1424, published by Pietsch, ibid, pp. 167-168, no. 42); the Museum of Applied Arts in Poznań (Inv. no. MNP Rz 1737) and the National Museum in Warsaw (Inv. no. SZC 3120.)

A smaller spoon (20 cm long) from the Jörg Nelte Collection was sold at Christie's, London, October 12, 1995, lot 57, formerly sold, Christie's, Geneva, November 12, 1984, lot 82.

Sotheby’s Scientific Research department used noninvasive XRF for this lot to screen the green enamel for chromium, which was not detected.
