This rare plate was obviously intended for personal use by the King, August the Strong, as indicated by the crowned AR monogram in the mirror of the plate. It must have been part of a larger, as yet unidentified "Böttger" stoneware service, since Claus Boltz (2000) was able to link an identical plate from the Royal Collections, numbered "No.28", with a second plate in a public collection in Stuttgart (C. Boltz, Steinzeug und Porzellan der Böttgerperiode - Die Inventare und die Ostermesse des Jahres 1719, Keramos, 167/168, 2000, p. 87, Ill. 110).
