Haase, G. Dresdener Möbel des XVIII jahrhunderts, Leipzig, 1983, p. 280, fig. 76;
Meisterwerke des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts: Kunstgewerbemuseum Dresden in Schloss Pillnitz, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, 1996, pp.62-63, fig. 33.
The present cabinet was almost certainly conceived as one of a pair. The likely companion bureau-cabinet is illustrated inter alia by G. Haase (op. cit., p. 280) and was formerly in the collection of the Royal Court of Saxony at Schloß Moritzburg (Inv. No. 42 350). The bureau-cabinet was restituted in the late 20th century and is now on view at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Pillnitz. Tantalisingly there is no record of the present cabinet in any of the historic inventories of Schloß Moritzburg.
