The only other recorded teapot of this type, of which the cover has slightly different decoration, was in the collections of Erich von Goldschmidt-Rothschild (sold by H. Ball & P. Graupe, Berlin, 23-25 March 1931, lot 483) and Otto and Magdalena Blohm (published by R. Schmidt, Early European Porcelain as collected by Otto Blohm (1953), no. 21). Three similarly decorated goblets of very rare form are recorded in the literature: two are in the Rijksmuseum (formerly in the Franz and Margarete Oppenheimer Collection, Berlin, and then the Fritz Mannheimer Collection, Amsterdam; published by A.L. den Blaauwen, Meissen Porcelain in the Rijksmuseum (2000), no. 19), and another is in the Dresden Porcelain Collection (published by O. Walcha, Meissner Porzellan (1973), pl. 46).

The collection of Meissen porcelain formed by Gustav and Charlotte von Klemperer in Dresden was one of the finest ever assembled. It was formed between the mid 1890s and Gustav von Klemperer's death on 27 December 1926. A few weeks later, Ludwig Schnorr von Carolsfeld's catalogue of the collection was published in a limited private edition of 150 copies. It is the only complete record of the collection, which was seized by the Nazis at the end of 1938, and is presumed to have been mostly destroyed in the bombing of Dresden in February 1945. Of the pieces and fragments that were recovered from the rubble after WWII, most were generously donated by the von Klemperer family to the Dresden Porcelain Collection as a permanent reminder of two of the city's greatest porcelain collectors. A small group was sold in these Rooms, 8 December 2010, lots 35-70.
