    The box was originally a base for a pin cushion, and the cover belonged to another box from the same service, as can be seen from the toilet service preserved in Schloss Glücksburg, which includes the same forms; see Hermann Jedding, Eine Meissener Toilette-Garnitur in Schloss Glücksburg, in Keramos 130 (1990), pp. 3-16, and ills. 6 (the cover) and 10 (the base for a pin cushion).
