This model, together with the matching hen, was originally modelled for Princess Johanna Charlotta of Anhalt-Dessau, the Abbess of Herford (1682-1750). Both models are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Untermyer Collection (see Y. Hackenbroch, Meissen and other Continental Porcelain (1956), fig. 17).
