The model for this vase was listed by Johann Gottlieb Ehder in his work notes in March 1744 as being for Heinrich Graf von Brühl (quoted by J. Weber, Meißener Porzellane mit Dekoren nach ostasiatischen Vorbildern, vol. II (2013), p. 355). Forty-eight apparently unpainted examples were sent from Dresden to the Warsaw Court Pantry in 1746, and another fifty entered the Warsaw Court Pantry in 1750 (ibid.)
