The porcelain dining set on the table was received by Caspar Voght by the Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm III as a gift for his contribution to reforming the welfare system. Blooming blue field bindweeds are depicted on the porcelain with high botanical accuracy and in fine color shades. The monogram "FWR"—Friedrich Wilhelm Rex—shows it to be a gift from the Prussian king. The field bindweed as a decoration could be interpreted as the king's homage to Voght and his ornamented farm.
