These three pieces belong to a series of topographical plates which were given as a wedding present to the crown princely couple William of Prussia and Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin by the smaller Prussian cities on 6th June 1905. The Pompadour form plate, based on a Meissen model, was highly popular with the Imperial family. In Haus Doorn several extensive series of plates painted with views of Imperial castles and yachts have survived, also painted by Julius Menzel.
