This moulded overlapping leaf dish was possibly decorated by the famous London painter, James Giles. The rim of the dish is gilded with a thin line and the centres of the large moulded leaves is painted in puce. The design of fruit and butterflies is characteristic of Giles's workshop painting as discussed by Stephen Hanscombe in James Giles, China and Glass Painter 1718-80 (see the reference section below).
