Catalogue Note

As noted by Eva Ströber in La Maladie de porcelaine.../East Asian Porcelain from the Collection of Augustus the Strong, Berlin, 2001, p. 76, the present dish was presumably acquired by Augustus the Strong in 1727 as contemporary porcelain. The collection inventory from 1779 notes the differing diameters and slight variations in decoration with dishes of this type. A similar dish from the Japanese Palace is illustrated ibid.
