  • Provenance:
    E.A. Titgemeyer Collection, Osnabrück

    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). Another box and cover from the same toilet service as the present lot, formerly in the collections of Walter von Pannwitz, Berlin, and Dr. F.C. Witte, Rostock, was most recently sold from the Dr. Roy Byrnes Collection, Christie's London, 12 May 2010, lot 99.
