The painting is similar to pieces associated with the painter Christian-Wilhelm Löwenfink (see also C.579-1909 and C.25-1929), and compare Dorothée Guillemé Brulon, Strasbourg & Niderviller - Sources et rayonnement, Histoire de la Faïence Francaise, Paris, 1999, p. 36-7, and Historiches Museum, Basel, Strassburger Keramik, 1986, cat. 116-17.
