Footnotes

  • A similar example illustrated in Karl Berling ed., Meissen China: An Illustrated History, p.92, fig. 231.

    According to Berling, the similar plaque illustrated was meant for the "wall of a cabinet." Designed by Ludwig Sturm, head of the Meissen painting department, the plaque employs the paste-upon-paste process that was popular in the 1880s.
