The artist copied the figural group from a engraving by Petrus Schenk Junior (1698-1775) from the series “Nieuwe geinventeerde Sineesen…”, Amsterdam c. 1720. This series was in the manufactory’s inventory of patterns at a very early stage, as other motifs from it have also been confirmed on various items of porcelain dating from the 1730s.
