Decalcomania was invented in England about 1750 and has been attributed to Simon François Ravenet, an French engraver who worked with Hogarth in London, while in England he perfected the process, which he called "décalquer" (derived from French papier de calque, "tracing paper"). The first known use of the French term décalcomanie. It became increasingly popular to décalquer objects of pottery, glass and wood. The present vase is a distinct type of decalcomania as it has scenes stuck to the inside of the vase rather than the outside. The scenes were then painted over from behind.
