A similarly decorated plate illustrated in Howard & Ayers, China for the West, London, 1978, vol.1, p. 193, no. 190, where the authors discuss the possibility that this subject of decoration must have been commissioned for the centennial of the Stadts-Herbergh (or Nieuwe Stadsherberg), the tavern built in 1662 and demolished in 1872. The building fronted the River IJ in Amsterdam and was a popular haunt for generations of Dutch V.O.C. (East India Company) sailors, who most probably made it their first and last port of call between voyages.
No exact print source for this decoration has yet been discovered. However, Le Corbeiller, in Patterns of Exchange, p. 108, no. 45, illustrates an engraving from Beschreibung der Stadt Amsterdam, published in 1664, which depicts a very similar view.
