Footnotes

  • The pagoda is taken from the 'Chinesischen Götzentempel' by the engraver Jeremias Wolff of Augsburg. See Helena Brozková (ed.), Daniel a Ignác Preisslerové (2009) for a comprehensive discussion of the glass and porcelain decorating workshop of Daniel and Ignaz Preissler in Kronstadt (Bohemia). The author illustrates (nos. 88-95) several examples of Chinese porcelain re-decorated in the Preissler workshop with characteristic chinoiserie figures and scrolling foliage. Two other plates are known: one in the Reissmuseum, Mannheim, formerly in the Hermansdörfer Collection) published by M. Jary, Chinoiserie (1981), pl. 93; the second published by Gustav Pazaurek, Deutsche Fayence- und Porzellan-Hausmaler (1925), vol. I, no. 191. For the examples in the Arnhold Collection, New York, see M. Cassidy-Geiger, The Arnhold Collection of Meissen Porcelain 1710-50 (2008), nos. 314-316.
