Lot Essay

The scenes depicted on this bowl are taken from engravings after paintings by James Seymour. The scenes on this bowl and that in the interior are almost identical to a slightly smaller punch bowl illustrated by Hervouët and Bruneau, La Porcelaine des Compagnies des Indes à Décor Occidental, Paris, 1986, p. 77, fig. 3.32a.
