The highly unusual decoration of the 'Trumpeter' pattern has often been grouped with the Cornelis Pronk designs for the Dutch East India Co. on the basis of its stylistic detail and sophisticated conception. Although it was not an officially commissioned Pronk design, it may well have been a private order. See D. Howard & J. Ayers, China For the West, London, 1978, vol. I, p. 305. A 'Trumpeter' plate from the Miller Collection was sold Christie's New York, 21 January 2016, lot 60, and another from the Lebel Collection, 17 January 2019, lot 534.
