Possibly taken from an engraving by Crispin de Passe (1564-1637) dated to 1616 after a painting by John Overbeck. For a similar treatment of this subject, perhaps using the same source see the dated dish of 1635 in the Victoria and Albert Museum, illustrated by Michael Archer, Delftware. The Tin-Glazed Earthenware of the British Isles. A Catalogue of the Collection in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 1997, p. 81, no. A.13.
