Sixty-one pieces from this service were included in the 1970 sale at Sotheby's. The service had been in the possession of the Christie-Miller family from about 1840 when it was bought, according to family tradition, in Paris from a member of the Orleans family. It was acquired by Samuel, M.P. for Newcastle-under-Lyme, 1847-1859. The 18th century provenance of the service still remains unclear. The sumptuous quality of the decoration has led to the suggestion that the service may have been a gift to the French court by Augustus III of Poland. His daughter Maria Josepha would later marry the Dauphin Louis Ferdinand in 1747.

Before the Sotheby's sale only two pieces of the service had been published, a large dish, 34cm. in diameter in the Kunst und Gewerbe museum, Hamburg (Ernst Zimmermann, Meissner Porzellan, Leipzig, 1926, p. 156, fig. 46); and a similar plate in the V&A museum, London (W. B. Honey, Dresden china: an introduction to the study of Meissen porcelain, London, 1934, pp. 97, 168, pl. xxiv b). The principal graphic sources for the painted scenes are the engravings by Melchior Küsel after Johann Wilhelm Baur published in Augsburg in 1681.
