Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Dishes with 43 cm diameter are the second largest among all Swan service dish models. The present dish has a splendid relief in top quality showing the famous design: the two swans with a heron to the left and another in flight overhead. The shell-moulded border is painted with the arms of Count Brühl and his wife Countess Kolowrat-Krakowsky, scattered ‘Indianische Blumen’ and edged with the gilt border.
Kaendler’s work records of 1738 / 39 mention the Swan service dish. The Meissen master sculptor has revised it for several times.
