The key to interpreting this small service lies in the inscription of one cup "Heinrich Hoffmann seinem guten Weibe Anne geb: Fontana. Krotoszyn, am 10. Decbr: 1821". The second cup and the saucers are inscribed with the names of six children born between 1801 and 1820: Johann Anton Valentin on 29th December 1801, Anne Julie Alexandrine Henriette on 18th September 1804, Ernst Heinrich Julius on 16th August 1809, Carl Heinrich Theodor on 15th January 1811, Heinrich Christian Leopold on 17th November 1816 and lastly Carl Alexander Friedrich on 28th January 1820.
The small garrison town of Krotoszyn in the province of Posen was returned to Prussia following the Vienna Congress of 1815. Copies of numerous archival records document the history of Heinrich Hoffmann's family.
