This design is probably copied from a Delft pottery example, after an early 18th century European print. The suggestion of a gadrooned rim may be influenced by earlier silver of pewterware. See the Victoria and Albert Museum example of this design, formerly in the Ionides collection, illustrated by F. and N. Hervout and Y. Bruneau, op.cit., 1986, no.13.9, p.294; another, from the Mottahedeh Collection, is illustrated by D.S. Howard and J. Ayers, op.cit., 1978, vol.I, no.34, p.76, also illustrated by C. Le Corbeiller, China Trade Porcelain, A Study in Double Reflections, no.12, p.27, where the author notes "the formal, rather stylized, elegance of the grapevine decoration has Near Eastern echoes that suggest a Spanish or Portuguese taste; (and) the imitation gadrooning around the rim can be traced to both Anglo-Dutch silver and Iberian ceramics". Another dish is in the Hodroff Collection, illustrated by David S. Howard, op.cit., 1994, no.5, where the author notes that "the shape of this dish suggests a tray suitable for wine goblets". A dish of this design was sold in these Rooms, 1 December 1997, lot 354.
