Footnotes

  • Two closely similar Meissen vases, along with two similar Chinese vases, are in the collection of the Schloss- and Spielkartenmuseum, Altenburg, which was formed by the Saxon-Thuringian statesman, scholar and collector, Bernhard August von Lindenau (1779-1854). His large collection of mostly Chinese and Japanese porcelain and works of art was transferred to the Ducal Rüst- und Antiqitätenkammer in the Altenburg Residence in 1845. Another example (with the neck reduced) is in the Ralph Wark Collection, The Cummer Museum and Gardens (published by U. Pietsch, Early Meissen Porcelain The Wark Collection (2011), no. 228).
