The tureen, cover and stand are decorated in the Fitzhugh pattern but rather than in underglaze blue, this tureen is in a blue overglaze enamel. Few pieces are known is this manner and it is most probable that all known pieces come from the same service probably made for the Swedish market.

Fitzhugh Pattern Porcelain for British and American Markets, 17801820
The name Fitzhugh for this pattern derives from an association with a blue and white service ordered around 1780 by Englishman Thomas Fitzhugh. Fitzhugh served from 1786 to 1800 in Guangzhou (Canton) as a director of the British East India Company.
Fitzhugh porcelain survives in a large range of dinner, beverage and ornamental ware shapes and was popular in America..... Yellow, black, or mulberry enameled Chinese Fitzhugh wares, as well as those bearing blue enamel and gilt ornament, are particularly rare.
