Lot Essay

An identical plate from the Mottahedeh collection, is illustrated by Howard and Ayers, China for the West, London and New York, 1978, vol.II, p. 369, no.361, where the authors suggest that the view is taken from an early 18th Century print, possibly after a Flemish original. Another very similar plate is illustrated by Hervouët and Bruneau, La Porcelaine des Compagnies des Indes à Décor Occidental, Paris, 1986, p. 355, fig. 15.45.
