One of the models is listed in Kändler's work records in June 1765, the translated description is as follows, 'For his Administrator Royal Highness (Franz Xaver Prince of Saxony and Poland), modelled a parrot, which is nearly one Elle high, it is sitting on a branch or on a stick, which is surrounded by rocks, as if he is screaming with slightly outstretched wings, presented in the most naturalistic and tidiest way, in his left claw he holds a cherry-branch with cherries and leaves'.
