The K.H.C. mark refers to the Königliche Hof-Conditorei. Work on the Dresden court service with the red dragon ordered by King Augustus III began in early November 1734. Deliveries to the royal confectioners are recorded until 1739. In 1751, 228 plates and 461 dishes in five different sizes are listed as still in existence, which gives us an idea of the dimensions of this service. Julia Weber mentions the eldest inventory of the Dresden court kitchens as containing "18 (pieces) small compote dishes". The first large assortment of porcelain from the royal collections (now the Saxon State Collections Dresden) was sold in Berlin by auction house Lepke in October 1920.
