Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This is a particularly elaborate example of some of the earliest enamel decoration added in London in the early years of the 18th century. Japanese and Chinese motifs are set in shaped cartouches on an iron-red ground with reserved foliage.
The lower band of lappets simulate the raised gadrooned decoration found on the silver originals of this form.
The porcelain 1690-1710, the decoration 1700 – 1720.
