The Meissen decoration here, entitled 'The Three Friends' is a copy of the Japanese Arita original. Decorated probably by Hoereldt, who had come to Meissen from the Royal Vienna factory, and where he as the decorating department manager influenced the considerable use of Japanese Kakiemon design. It features two birds, one in flight and one perched on a branch, with the bamboo plant and the apple green decoration (seen also in the green ground of Meissen cups at a similar time).
