Howard & Ayers identify the dress and countryside on this bowl as almost certainly English, noting that it might well have been used at harvest festivities. An almost identical bowl from the Helena Woolworth McCann collection at The Metropolitan Museum, New York, is illustrated by J.G. Phillips, China-Trade Porcelain, 1956, p. 79.
