Reference: Chelsea Porcelain at Williamsburg, John Austin, Pages 96-97, #87 for illustration of a similar pair but without the flower painting. The author mentions that this shape of leaf dish was used both as an underdish for tromp l'oeil tureens such as rabbit, cauliflower, melon and rose forms and also as part of dessert services. He quotes a description from the Chelsea porcelain sale on the sixth day, lot 42, in 1755 described as "scollop'd compotiers green leaves."
