Catalogue Note

At least two other examples of this rare model are recorded, both painted in enamels, one is in the Metropolitan museum of Art, New York gifted by R. Thornton Wilson, acc. no. 52.2.5; the other is published by Friedrich H. Hofmann, Frankenthaler Porzellan, Band I, Munich, 1911, taf. 71, no. 304, as being in the collection of Schloss Bamberg. Linck modelled a group of the Three Graces, which was likely the pendant to the present model, see Hofmann, ibid., taf. 71, no. 303.
