The exhibition  ‪ ‘Deutsche Künstler und Die SS ‬ – “German artists and the SS” (catalogue pictured below) shown in 1944 in Breslau and Salzburg lists exhibit number 589 as ‘Fünf Kacheln gerahmt mit Reitermotiven (Keramik, Porzellan-Manufactur, Allach-Münch.)’. ‘Five tiles decorated with cavalry designs’.
