Footnotes

  • A similar beaker with its cover in the Porzellansammlung Dresden is illustrated by R. Rückert/J. Willsberger, Meissen Porzellan des 18. Jahrhunderts (1977), pl. 46. That example has the incised Japanese Palace inventory number "N=156-/ W"; the 1770 inventory of the Japanese Palace lists six such covered beakers, as well as (under no. 155) six slightly larger examples (see Claus Boltz, Japanisches Palais-Inventar 1770 und Turmzimmer-Inventar 1769, in Keramos 153 (1996), pp. 51-52).
