Augustus the Strong,patron of the Meissen Porcelain Works,had within his private collection Japanese enamelled porcelains decorated in the manner that had been developed by the Kakiemon family - the design championed by the Meissen Decorating Manager Hoereldt here and earlier at the Royal Vienna factory - in the Arita province during the seventeenth-century. They in turn had been inspired by decoration of Chinese Ming porcelains.The Japanese porcelain - nigoshi-te, a milk-white porcelain - was decorated overglaze as in the manner of Meissen. The whole collection was housed in the Japanese Palace and the Meissen factory workers used these pieces to influence some of their decoration.
The decoration on the Milk Jug offered accords with that of a bottle vase (underglaze blue AR mark), excepting a pronounced yellow flower on the bottle vase ( see Morley-Fletcher pp. 38-39) as decorated in bold colours of Meissen by A F von Loewenfinck and based on the Kakiemon original.
