Lot Essay

A Chinese porcelain pen box in the Dreesmann Collection had this same rare decoration after a Mughal miniature inside (sold Christie's London, 10 April 2002, lot 466). The scene was also on a snuff box sold Christie's London, 11 May 2004, lot 89. No other examples seem to be recorded; perhaps these were commissioned by a diplomat or other European resident of India.
